Elementary Program

Time is set aside most days for students in each classroom to meet about classroom and school-wide issues. The students set the agenda and facilitate meetings. Class members take turns in the leadership positions. Teachers participate in class meetings as a member of the class but also provide support as needed to help structure meetings, model group process strategies and provide counsel. Each classroom also elects a Classroom Representative to attend All School Meetings. The Representative carries concerns, discussions, and decisions between class meetings and all school meetings.
