Every year our country sets aside a special day in September to recognize the importance of the U.S. Constitution and the many rights afforded through this revolutionary document. Clerk of Court Green visited four schools last week to speak about our constitution’s role in the local judicial system — specifically, the right to a fair trial (guaranteed in the 6th Amendment) and jury duty.
About 1,000 high school and junior high school students last week viewed a PowerPoint presentation and 6th Amendment visual displays that were included, along with receiving free pocket-sized U.S. Constitutions for attendees to take home. All of the classes at MHS, OPHS, CHS and LAJHS were filled with students who asked excellent questions. Many thanks to the teachers at each of these schools who arranged for Clerk Green’s visit and who helped make it a very successful learning experience. Clerk Green ended the week by joining CCSD Superintendent Davis and Curriculum Specialist Watt for a taping of the CCSD’s Community Connections video, that will be featured online and highlight the partnership between the CCSD and the Clerk’s Office. Great things to come!
