In a climate where more attention is being paid to student voice in the classroom, many are asking how school boards might approach incorporating students into their work in a way that goes beyond inviting someone to report on Homecoming festivities.

Join MASB for a day dedicated to understanding the power of student voice and the possibilities of student representation on the board of education. Hear from Adam Fletcher, a leading expert on student voice and representation, about the benefits of engaging students in the work of boards in a deep and meaningful way. We will also examine legal considerations and hear from a panel of Michigan educators and leaders about how these ideas are playing out in their districts.
