    • How to Increase Student Engagement at Your School
    • But First: Why Should You Care If Students Are Engaged?
    • In 2009, the High School Survey of Student Engagement asked students if they ever considered dropping out, and why. Of those that did, two out of three respondents (66%) answered that they are bored at least one day a week in class in high school; nearly half of the students (49%) are bored every day and approximately one out of every six students (17%) are bored in every class.
    • Ok, so how do we keep them engaged?
    • Answer: We reach them through all three channels of the student environment. Academically Socially Emotionally
    • Step 1: How to Engage Students Socially
    • This one’s easy: students love to express their opinions. To find out how they feel, just ask them! (And make sure to act on their feedback.)
    • How to roll out student engagement surveys and polls: The Gallup Student Poll is an online poll made up of 20 well-researched questions designed to assess the hope, engagement, and wellbeing of American children. The poll takes eight to ten minutes to complete, and is entirely free to any public or private school in the United States. The poll will indicate how your students respond to three key factors of student success: hope, engagement, and well- being. With the Naviance Survey Builder tool, you can create an unlimited number of custom surveys for your students, parents, and even alumni. You can also create surveys targeted to a specific class year to vote on student council elections or prom court nominations, for example. Embed polls on your Family Connection homepage, to make signing into Naviance a part of your students’ weekly schedules. Learn More Learn More
    • Build your school community through social media. (Poll your students to find out what they like to use, then start a school account.)
