Vermont High School Gives Students Say in Their Campus
Vermont’s Harwood Union High School trains students and staff members to work cooperatively to devise innovative solutions to curriculum, scheduling and other critical aspects of the school’s operations.
Student councils are a common facet of high school life in the U.S. But one school in Vermont is developing a system of internal governance that integrates student voices into decision-making that goes beyond improving cafeteria fare. Harwood Union High School, with community group Up for Learning, trains students and staff members to work cooperatively to devise solutions to curriculum and other aspects of the school’s operations.
