Building Partnerships Between Principals and Student Leaders
The role of student leaders has evolved from being willing participants in their school to being partners in educational outcomes. A simple rephrasing of the Principal Evaluation Criteria of the Leadership Framework (graphic below) brings this point to light. All leaders in a school – both student and adult – need to be focused on the same question: how can schools help all students achieve academic and social success?
All programs of the Association of Washington Student Leaders train students to recognize that they not only have a voice, but a part to play, in the transformation of schools.
