At Harwood Union High School, student voices matter.

That was evident March 17 and 18 when a group of Harwood students, teachers and administrators attended a conference in Massachusetts.

Members of student government, the Harwood Leadership Team and a group called Youth and Adults Transforming Schools Together attended a two-day High School Redesign in Action conference in Norwood, Mass., which focused on measures schools could take to improve teaching and learning in the 21st century.

Harwood sent a student delegation to the conference last year, too. Not many schools did, said Sam Krotinger, a photography/media arts teacher at Harwood.

This year’s conference was much more student-driven, he said, and the Harwood group might have helped that to happen.

This year, some Harwood representatives, with students at the forefront, gave a presentation titled “A Call to Leadership: Harnessing the Power of the Student Voice in Leading School Improvement.”
