Feedback form is now closed.
Youth Participatory Evaluation (YPE) allows our students to become evaluators. Born out of the Distrsict's agreement with the Office of Civil Rights, YPE students in each high school choose a research question that is important to them and relates to their education, school climate, and/or student engagement. The team then tries to answer their question by collecting voices at their school, amplifying what they hear, and taking action. Youth recommendations contribute to school, district, and community discussions and decisions. We believe youth have expertise that needs to be heard. This session will be co-led by MPS student. We will provde an overiw of our model as well as ideas on how to adapt for your local context.
