Perceptions of Student Voice at AISD High Schools

AISD high school students were less likely than high school staff to believe their ideas and opinions influenced school policies, according to findings from the 2020-2021 AISD Student Climate Survey and the 2021 AISD Multi-Program Survey. Differences between students' and staff's perceptions were greatest at schools with a higher percentage of white students. In addition, students at smaller high schools were more likely to believe their ideas and opinions mattered when compared to students at larger high schools.
