Student-run initiatives will take the spotlight at Monday’s Algoma School Board meeting. Its student mentoring Wolves and Pups program and its after-school Wolf Den initiative are among the items high schoolers will give updates to the school board. Its newest program will connect students with local businesses to show off the different career opportunities available in the area. Algoma Superintendent Nick Cochart says this goes beyond its WolfTech technical education program, which already partners with local manufacturers to make different component parts.
Cochart believes student involvement in these programs is also translating to higher achievement in the classroom.
