BE A VOICE...
NOT AN ECHO!
Empowering students at every level to have a VOICE and to ensure their needs are met with the appropriate grade level resources.
What is VOICE?
District-wide, K-12 program that will impact all students through implementation of a student empowerment initiative to ensure every student in the district develops the skills and belief system to advocate for themselves and their peers. This comprehensive program will
Develop student voices
Foster social and emotional learning
Provide executive functioning skills to ensure all students are comfortable and capable of functioning in a virtual world
Capability of reporting concerns they have about their safety, the well-being of others and the integrity of the learning environment.
Student groups partnering within the school and throughout the district
Provide focused age-appropriate delivery of instruction on interpersonal skills to a myriad of topics while high school students will serve as role models to students in the lower grade levels.
In addition, the district-wide program will provide K-12 support for all SHS graduates to fulfill the SHS “Vision of the Graduate,” NEASC standard that we will be developing over the next 2 years.
