FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – A Greene county school is getting students involved in the decision making process when it comes to their education.
Every quarter one student from grades six through twelfth gets a free breakfast and a chance to meet with the Fairborn board of education. Its aimed at getting students to be more involved in their education.
“Its a really good discussion. It helps the board get a thought process from our prospective as students,” said Evan Powell a senior at Fairborn High School.
The students are asked their opinion on how they can improve the school district, as well as what’s working. The report then goes to all the district’s principals and counselors so they can take action as they see fit.
Friday’s topic was snow days and why not all students are glad when the district closes.
Tess Little, president of Fairborn Board of Education said, “When you have all that testing today, and what they make on those tests really matter, it matters to colleges, so it does stress them out. Sure they might like it that morning to sleep in, but overall its more stressful than relaxing. ”
The district has used six calamity days. That means they have to make up one day. For that, they are using a blizzard bag, take home assignments to complete.
