The Citizens Education Academy will provide Lincoln citizens a hands-on interactive public information program that familiarizes and gives them a true, behind-the-scenes sense of Lincoln Public Schools. The Academy will provide citizens with insight into how our school district works, will promote open lines of community engagement and communication, will provide opportunities for citizen feedback, and will establish clearer understanding from both sides.
Participants will gain a better, deeper understanding of the school district and an increased sense of ownership in local schools — creating understanding advocates of public education in our community – and LPS will gain a better, deeper understanding of citizen perspective.
This unique, no-charge public outreach program will be open to 20-30 people from our community (18 and older) with 9 sessions during the school year — featuring a heavy dose of unique encounters and normal school experiences. All sessions will happen in school settings.
