Developing Active Citizens

Recent events in our area and a nationwide spike in acts of racism, anti-Semitism, and hate speech give considerable pause to educators, including all of us in SAU16, who are charged with the task of developing active citizens of our students. Yet it is these very times when we must increase our efforts to ensure that all of our school environments – in the classroom, on the playground, on our buses – are safe and respectful places for every one of our students.
