2018 Session
Relevance while facing Reality: Student Voice in School Violence Dialogue
Ruth Ellen Vaughn, Superintendent, SAU 61, and Betsy Jacobsen, SAU 61

Level: Beginner
Grades: 9-12
On April 20, 2018, Farmington High School students lead a student-centered panel discussion about school violence, their concerns, questions, and solutions. Betsy Jacobsen and Ruth Ellen Vaughn will share with you their process of getting the adults out of the way so that students could be heard by state and local officials and their own peers. In this "Birds of a Feather" discussion, we will talk about letting the students direct the dialogue and applications to other topics that challenge our communities.
