Student-Driven Schools Update - 3/16

The Student-Driven Schools Pathway team has met multiple times over the past few months and has set up bi-weekly meetings to continue the work ahead. We are working to organize and establish protocols to engage student focus groups that will help the team to understand from the students themselves where they have experienced key concepts of student driven schools, such as choice, interest, and academic risk taking.

In addition, we have begun to gather research of programs and processes that have provided schools with the tools necessary to institute mentoring programs for all students. The team also continues to gather information on the work of growth mindset in schools.
