Crescent Valley High

Brief history of how our school, and its students, have addressed environmental, climate, racial justice and/or social justice work:

Corvallis School District has been fortunate enough to incorporate and encourage students to discuss environmental/racial injustices throughout K-12. Majority of Crescent Valley students self-educate outside of campus, but resources provided in the school are warmly welcomed. Previously, a member of student government surveyed a large percentage of Crescent Valley on topics revolving climate change and social justice in the classroom. Numbers ranged for each question, but the most conclusive answer received was the lack of education around AI/AN and NHPI.

A large sum of CV students support yielding climate change and addressing racial inequities, but they are limited to taking action. Whether it be scheduling conflicts or not knowing where to start, students have difficulty navigating what they can do in their own community.

Club goals, priorities and interests (that are aligned with Our Future)

  • Community action and civic engagement (e.g. marches/rallies, public speaking, letter writing campaigns).
  • Being involved with legislative actions.
  • Having student representatives on a "youth climate council" in your city and/or county.
  • Becoming certified as an Oregon Green School (or upgrading to the next level).
  • Enhance your waste reduction practices (e.g. composting, paper use, recycling, beverage containers, reusable utensils in the cafeteria).
  • Training opportunities for Our Future leaders (e.g. leadership skills, fundraising, etc.).
  • Training opportunities for other students at your school (e.g. climate science, how to get involved in environmental/social justice issues).
  • Increase club membership (including recruiting Freshman/Sophomores into your club/team).
