B) Provide your leaders a voice
B) Provide your leaders a voice in their school; this will create a connection, sense of ownership, commitment and investment. It won’t just connect your students to your school, your students will feel a part of your team; it will foster a feeling of US with no THEM. Programs that help to give students voice are built into your programs already: ASB/student council, class council, club programs. You can expand and enhance their voice by using a more formal structure for this called “Raising Student Voice and Participation” or RSVP. CADA’s Leadership Development Coordinator, Sandra Kurland, (firstname.lastname@example.org ) is trained in RSVP (RSVP is a NASSP program).
