Creating schools of the future 

During the last few years there has been a national discussion about the schools of the future: how they might look, what roles will technology play, and how teachers will teach. High school students in the Rochester City School District will soon enter this discussion.

About 425 Rochester high school students will gather at School of the Arts on Friday afternoon to share their ideas for creating the model city high schools of the future. Each district high school is sending a group of about 30 student volunteers, who will brainstorm on topics such as how to make school more stimulating, or how schools should be structured.

The event is intended to give students a voice in the design process for Phase 3 of the schools modernization program.

Looking forward, schools may be viewed more as community spaces than stand-alone buildings, says Donald Starver, spokesperson for the district. And some students may want opportunities out in the community that are aligned with their career paths, such as internships. A student interested in a career in health care, for instance, may spend part of the day in a local hospital, Starver says.
