Local Government Day
Local Government Day provides an opportunity for students enrolled in American History: The Founding Principles, Civics and Economics to attend a local government meeting and visit several local government agencies to learn about the services they provide. This event allows older students, those who will soon be independent citizens and voters, to see first-hand how our local government agencies support the community. Our hope is that the students will recognize the importance of local government and embrace future opportunities to become involved and informed community members and leaders.
