All School Dialogue update
On May 18th, a second all-school dialogue was held at Harwood Union High School. This conversation was once again completely student led and designed. The group of facilitators reviewed the feedback from the previous dialogue and chose to move forward with another agenda based around school safety; this time centered around looking into next year. The reflection on this event was recorded and the major takeaways and next steps are shared below.
A huge shout out to Ellen Berrings for everything she has done to make sure we created equitable space to hear from all students at Harwood. These dialogues would not have been possible without her support and dedication.
