Harwood Union’s First All School Dialog:
On April 1, 2015 approximately 625 students and 85 faculty/staff simultaneously participated in a facilitated dialog that spanned almost 3 hours. The dialog was an opportunity to share perspectives about relationships and relevance of teaching and learning in a safe and respectful way. It was about building community. It was about discovering our strengths and challenges as a learning organization, and collectively thinking about ways to make improvements. Simply put, it was powerful.

During the April 8th ERD a handful of students and teachers collated all the input from the dialog and are preparing to present it to the faculty/staff and students along with a process for deciding action steps we can take as a learning community.

Harwood Youth and Adult Team to Present at the Vermont State House
In 2013, Vermont passed Act 77: Flexible Pathways. The legislation serves as a promise to the children of the state—that a high-quality education be accessible and available to all learners. It is also a promise to the future of Vermont, as strong schools lead to strong communities—and vice versa!
This past year, through the support of the Vermont Agency of Education and State School Board Association, a Harwood youth and adult team has been supported to build public understanding and support for Act 77. Harwood members of the “Communicating School Redesign” course will present their collective work with 4 other Vermont youth and adult teams. The Harwood team includes students Cole Lavoie, Sophia Minter and Alexa Widschwenter; Ellen Berrings, Marcus Grace and Amy Rex will accompany them.
