The Greenfield Public Schools believes strongly in the importance of civic engagement and developing opportunities for students to participate in local government. In 2018, Governor Baker signed into law “An Act to Promote and Enhance Civic Engagement,” and in 2018-2019, the Greenfield Public Schools administration & teachers have been hard at work planning for the roll-out of these exciting new learning opportunities.

On Wednesday, April 10th, Greenfield High School Principal Karin Patenaude, and GHS History teachers, Mr. Martin and Ms. Dodge, presented an overview of the new Civics Curriculum that GPS plans to begin implementing in the 2019-20 School Year. The new plan is consistent with and expands upon the vision of the district’s strategic plan, which calls for meaningful project-based and community service learning, and is included in the Superintendent’s goals as voted by the School Committee.
