Summary: This research analyses student participation in democratic management processes, and also in the School Council at a municipal elementary school unit in the municipality of Vila Velha/E.S. It performs a listening process of members of the school community ,with the aim of identifying new ways of participation and student organization at school. Taking into account the listening analysis of students, teachers and members of the School Council ,a new document was created, containing new ways of participation and student organization in the school premisses. Qualitative, participatory and documentary research was used. In participatory research, scientific and popular knowledge are critically articulated into a new and transforming third knowledge, always seeking the unity between theory and social practice. The locus of the research was a UMEF (Municipal Elementary Education Unit) of Region One, a Vila Velha Center that teaches students from sixth to ninth grades, totaling 446 enrolled students. With the permission of their parents, 32 students from fifth to ninth grades were interviewed. In addition, other 24 members of the school community were interviewed, including members of the School Council. The school, in its daily life, is permeated by relationships that express concepts and authoritarian postures, affecting the autonomy and protagonism of the student . The participation of students can happen through representation on the school council, choice of class representatives, choice of the school principal, unions, class council, implementation of school pedagogical projects and pedagogical proposals defined by the teaching system. However,whenever student participation happens, it is usually a supervised/allowed one, requiring, in most cases, the mediation of school staff, especially teachers. The investigation identified that there is an urgent need to implement collective actions to encourage, not only student organization, but also training processes, in addition to democratic educational practices for greater student participation in every day school life. Besides that, there was a need for training,not only the pedagogical staff , but also the members of the School Council , aiming to create an environment conducive to student autonomy and engagement in the decision-making process beyond the pedagogical procedures and syllabus established by educational networks.
