REGULATION 5134

STUDENT INPUT

The intent of student input is to provide an opportunity for students to be involved actively in their education.  Responsible, active involvement enables students to become quality producers, self-directed learners, perceptive thinkers, flexible problem solvers, community contributors, and effective communicators, thus developing their potential as life long learners.

In contributing to the collaborative goals of the school district, this regulation facilitates responsible student input and builds upon initiatives currently in practice.

  • participating in formulating criteria that demonstrate understanding of learning outcomes
  • assisting in the selection of appropriate resources and materials to support acquisition of learning outcomes
