Student Power

Overview

We are proud of our newest initiative, Student Power.

Middle and High School students, from all subjects, 当他们确定和研究他们选择的当地公共政策问题时,他们是否会参与基于项目的学习,然后向相关决策者提出他们的想法. 赠款包括参加当地政府会议的资金(例如:迈阿密戴德县委员会或迈阿密戴德县学校委员会)。. A small sample of topics from previous years includes the need for mental health services, vaping among teens, climate change, and cash bail.

教师将接受AG亚游集团官方网站学生力量团队全年的持续培训和支持, including workshops at the November 6th Idea EXPO - The Teacher Conference.

For the 2021-22 school year, 10个学生动力项目将在全县得到资助,包括250美元的教室/实地考察补助金和250美元的教师津贴. The project supports inviting guest speakers, including elected officials and community advocates and more into the classroom, live or via Zoom, and an invitation to participate in author-talks arranged by The Miami Book.

“Through this initiative, I've experienced a tangible sense of empowerment,” stated a Student Power student.
