NCCS Student Advisory Places Emphasis on the 4Cs

4cs The NCCS Student Advisory for the 2013-14 school year met at Newton-Conover High School recently.  This year, for the first time, the advisory includes not only high school students from Discovery and NCHS but also middle school and elementary school students from around our district.  Dr. David Stegall’s vision for Student Advisory is to blend leadership discussion and team building with collaborative project-based learning.

Students will meet quarterly to learn more about leadership, share their experiences, and work on their year-long project – creating a video that demonstrates why their school is the best school in North Carolina.  Students on the council are encouraged to return to their schools and reach out to other students and adults that can support them as they work on this project collaboratively.
