The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board hosted their second Listening Session of the year on Monday, May 23, with a focus on hearing student voices.
The Board of Directors hosted students from each of the district’s four middle schools to learn about their school experiences first-hand. School Board members asked questions about their school community, their feeling of connection to their school, and ways in which their school experience could be enhanced. Students shared their thoughts and feelings, highlighting areas of strength within their schools as well as places where they see room for improvement.
The Board also listened to an impressive presentation from Wood Middle School students that encapsulated weeks of hard work. Students queried fellow students, district staff, and conducted primary and secondary research around the topic of school lunches, culminating in a presentation with information and feedback for the School Board.
The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board held a parent listening session earlier in the school year. The Board has used listening sessions in an effort to increase two-way communication with the community. The Board’s next meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 6, starting at 6 p.m.

Welcome to the West Linn-Wilsonville School District!
Our incredible students, talented staff, supportive and dedicated community make this a tremendous place in which to learn and lead.
Our school district guides us with a compelling vision question, “How do we create learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people…for the world?”
This question challenges us to continually hone our practices and skills in creating exceptional learning environments for our students. The question also challenges us to implement practices that help our students grow as thoughtful citizens and compassionate humanitarians. Together, the vision question prompts us to continually engage our students’ minds and hearts. As the late poet, Maya Angelou declares, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”
We pledge to do our best when working with the children entrusted in our care. This year holds great promise, great opportunities and great accomplishments for each of them.
