As part of this process, I've been pushing for more and more student voice in our decision-making process. You can't claim to be a student-centered school if you don't involve students from the very beginning.... In an effort to do this, I created a quick, optional Google Forms survey and sent it out to our students. (Take a look). The main thrust was in three questions:
- Write 3-5 words that describe what you hope JN Fries will be like
- Write 3-5 words that describe what you hope to DO at JN Fries next year
- Are you interested in coming in with other students to speak to our leadership team about what types of things you'd like to see happen at JN Fries next year?
I loved the responses I got! I decided to make a Wordle Word Cloud of the first two questions to share with our leadership team and I thought I'd share them here as well:
What our future students hope JN Fries will be like:
What our future students hope they will DO:
I'll also be contacting the students that were willing to come and talk to us soon so we can get their input into their new school. Looking forward to it!
