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, communities and world for the better…now and for the future.

(1/2) The decision to return students and staff to our facilities for in-person instruction is one of the most important we will ever make as district leaders. Last night our Board voted to take an important step forward, with concern for our students and staff as the priority.
