SoundOut for Meaningful Student Involvement

Meaningful Student Involvement Schools

2013EngagethruMSISome places embody SoundOut’s work entirely. We called these Meaningful Student Involvement Schools.

Within these schools, the cascading effects of Meaningful Student Involvement on both individuals and institutions is obvious. They show clearly that the more individual opportunities for meaningful involvement in a specific class, around a school building, throughout a district, within a state, or across a nation, the more meaningful education will be for every single student involved. This includes different ages, socio-economic statuses, cultural backgrounds, racial differences, and soon on.

When taken as a whole, though, individual actions within and throughout a school supersede isolated incidents and ripple far beyond the people involved. Meaningful Student Involvement simply works better when it happens more. As shown in the earlier chapter on benefits, the more people who are directly engaged in Student/Adult Partnerships the more the entirety of a school or district can be affected. There are a number of schools where this is happening today.


Several earlier examples mentioned on this website are be included here, including:


All of these are public schools, and all of them foster Student/Adult Partnerships. Each of them deeply infuse Meaningful Student Involvement throughout learning, teaching and leadership in their buildings.
