This was a part of the school’s U.S. Government curriculum and the projects were intended to help the students become experts on a public policy issue in the community. The work emphasized teamwork and face-to-face meetings with experts in the community. The project culminated a citizen action activity where they share their findings and make policy recommendations (e.g. public forums; speaking before public bodies).


During the 2010-2011 school year, students were encouraged to use cvillepedia as a publishing platform to share their research on local public policy issues.
