Glimpse what's possible...

We hope you enjoy this 5-minute video of the 2005 conference.  It will give new HSLC partner teachers and students a good sense of how the day progresses from negotiatons to a culminating policy session.





Attention Teachers

Your school can run its own HSLC.

For those who cannot attend, the materials and the policy forum are intended for classroom use. 

HSLC is a leaderhip opportunity both for high school and USC students to conduct deeper deliberations and reach a broader consensus.   Your school is the perfect place to conduct the same process.
