What is Speak Up? <http://www.tomorrow.org/> 
Speak Up is a national initiative of Project Tomorrow (formerly known as
NetDay). Since fall 2003, the annual Speak Up project has collected and
reported on the views of over 1.5 million K-12 students, teachers,
administrators and parents representing over 18,000 schools in all 50
states. The Speak Up data represents the largest collection of
authentic, unfiltered stakeholder input on education, technology, 21st
century skills, schools of the future and science instruction.
Education, business and policy leaders report using the data regularly
to inform federal, state and local education programs. Visit
www.tomorrow.org for more info.

To date, over 1,000 NH students have taken the Speak Up Survey. We need
many more students' voices! Take a look at the national percentages
<http://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/speak_up_2009_State_Participation.html>
of surveys from each state as of 12/8/09. Let's play catch up today and
next week, shall we? So far, your colleagues at the following districts
have a good head start in leading the effort for New Hampshire, with
Derry students in the lead at 249 surveys completed as of 12/8/09:

Farmington
