Westminster High School students had the floor all to themselves Monday as the Board of Education engaged in their annual meeting with students to find out what’s on their minds.
The get together has become one of the most important tools for the BOE in seeing the education system from the perspective of a students. Over the years the meetings have provided valuable input on everything from high school transcripts to the cafeteria food line.
“We want an open dialogue with you,” said Board President Dino Valente. “You only get one chance at high school and we want it to be right for you.”
New to the conversation this year was the opening last fall of the Future Center in the high school library. It’s a place for students to go to seek out information about the college enrollment process and available scholarships. Several students praised the opening of the Center and encouraged freshman and sophomore students to take full advantage of the facility long before they become seniors.
