Developing a new generation of civic leaders.
Through GenerationNation, students learn first-hand how their governments and communities work; understand important civic issues and differing points of view; know how to find and use good sources of news and information; build social capital and experience for civic problem-solving and leadership; and, join a diverse network of civic leaders who are working to transform their schools, neighborhoods, and city for the better…now and for the future.
GenerationNation develops a new generation of civic leaders. Civic education, civic engagement, and civic leadership for all K-12 students.
Here it is. But with this pace I believe we haven’t seen everything yet.
.@CMSboard meeting is about the budget, but FB comments are full of people demanding answers about grading for HS classes, esp. seniors. Challenge for @CharMeckSchools is that the state controls many of these decisions.
Students can choose to take their AP Exams either during the May 11-22 window or the June 1-5 window. Each subject’s exam will be taken at the same time worldwide.
Get more details about this year's AP Exams here.
To encourage kids to explore the NYT with their free subscriptions, we’re running a special April version of our Summer Reading Contest.
All they have to do is click around and tell us what caught their eye and why:

I had the opportunity to speak with the student advisor to the @CMSboard @gabrielschuhl today. Coming up at 5 - he shares some of his thoughts during this challenging time for schools and their families @wsoctv
There's been a lot of press conferences about the #coronavirus the past few weeks. But if you don't speak English it's a challenge to find the resources to stay informed and stay safe.
Two @ccdsnews brothers are making it easier:

They help create a level playing field as people stay safe.
CMS expects all students to engage in new learning but also understand that there are some circumstances that may deter or limit a student or family’s ability to do so. Please see the full CMS message from Dr. Matt Hayes: https://t.co/yHPThhr7SV
