NISD Student Advocate Program

Do you have an idea of how your school can improve but have never had a chance to share

it?

Are you passionate about technology?


Then it’s your time to… 


Become part of a trailblazing team of students and lead your school in positive change.

Teach technology use to other students and teachers in your area.


Start a digital revolution in your school.


Apply now to become a member of the inaugural group of Northwest ISD student advocates. As a member, you will take part in a 3-day workshop where you will learn to role model and leverage responsible use of technology in your school. During the workshop, you will have the opportunity to develop a project with a group of your peers to positively affect the culture of Northwest ISD.

Throughout the school year, your campus and district advisor will host sessions with teams.

Student advocates will also play a large role in the NISD 1:World Conference in July. Students will introduce keynote speakers, host breakout sessions for teachers and help with the overall facilitation of the event.
