• Building Strength in Voices Mini-Conference

    February 28, 2020 - Scheels Training Center

  • During the 2019-2020 school year, five elementary schools in WCSD built Student Advisory Council models as part of the Strength in Voices Learning Community.

    Building Strength in Voices 2020 was an event to empower elementary students from those 5 schools who are actively engaged in organized student voice projects in hopes that they would leave inspired and ready to take on similar student voice activities in their middle schools.   

    Throughout the day, students participated in various activities to build leadership skills and self-confidence to further support their on-going school improvement efforts.

    Students selected breakout sessions to attend that covered topics like how to effectively advocate for school change, listening and speaking skills, and the transition from elementary to middle school.

    This event was planned and hosted in partnership with the WCSD Student Advisory Council and most presenters and speakers were middle and high school students.
