Results of Student Conversation Released

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

We want students to begin to own their own learning, be empowered, and actively engage in their education. For that reason, we must give students a voice and hear directly from them about what they like, want and feel they need in their school experience.

To gather that input, we chose a Student Voice ThoughtExchange, an easy-to-use and interpret method with questions for our students in grades 3-8. chart of participation dataNearly all of them participated in the April 2018 online forum, sharing their thoughts and ideas with us and each other. The district- and school-level results are available online and from your child's school. They offer valuable information for school and district plans aimed at providing students with an education beyond the expected.
