Superintendent’s Student Advisory Committee Presents the Results from their Survey to the School Board and Superintendent
May 22, 2017
In January 2017, the Superintendent selected 22 students for the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Committee. The students that were selected represent 14 public schools in grades 8-12. The Committee was assigned the task of coming together to provide advice about their experiences in the schools to the Superintendent and to members of the School Board. The Student Advisory Committee was responsible for providing advice on two key questions. Those questions were:
- What are the most important components that students want out of their school?
- What experiences and resources do students seek, that may or may not be available today?
The students also did surveys and collected information from their peers based off these questions. The group met twice a month for four months under the guidance of four teachers and members of OPSB administration. On May 18, 2017 the students presented their findings to the School Board and Dr. Lewis.
The results of the survey and the vision of the Student Advisory Committee are linked below along with the full list of students and their schools.
