The discussion will include a review of the findings from a REL Central study that explored how students at Legacy High School used the flexible-time system. Additionally, Suzanne Hiller, an expert on fostering student agency, will discuss how the findings from the REL Central study are connected to the research on student agency. And she will share concrete, evidence-based strategies to develop student agency.
