Student Engagement Events

Student Engagement is committed to offering students opportunities to thrive both in and out of the classroom. We encourage and assist students in becoming involved in school, district, and citywide programs that will help them build skills and interact with their peers. 

Student engagement works to provide opportunities for student academic and social-emotional success across the district. Support is available to school sites for all the events listed below.
