Students' Issues Committee Leaders
"Students voice creates engagement between students and their school district, allowing for a meaningful discussion about the education system"
As the SI Officer, I hope to inspire students to think critically towards their education. Many students go to school accepting that there is little they can change, whether it is their assessment or the way they are taught. As a result, students often come to class disengaged, because they see little that they can change in their education. As the SI Officer I aim to ask students what they would like to see changed in their education, and by reporting to the VDSC and the student trustee so that the district council can act on these concerns, students will feel empowered to continue to speak up - because they start to believe that what they say will lead to a change. Students do deserve a voice in their own education. Such a school community becomes an environment of students who begin to take responsibility for their learning - they who design their own school experience begin to look forward to it - and in place of bored students we will instead have excited youth.

How will we pinpoint an issue?
Student Issues committee members and VDSC reps are to pinpoint which issues students are most concerned with within their school communities. This site will also act as a resource for students to reflect upon their school experience differently upon viewing opinions expressed here by their peers. We are considering every aspect of the school experience, asking students how they feel about course assessment, teaching styles, and student roles in administrative decisions. We will be including student opinions around each of these broad topics as well as specific student concerns that may be specific to one school. If a common issue is prevalent across multiple schools, it will be addressed as the first priority by the VDSC, and will be the "Issue of the Month".
