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.

.@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.
