​One of the foundational goals of public education is to educate and equip the next generation of citizens, our students, with a strong understanding of their civic and governmental responsibilities. 

The Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) is designating the month of August 2015 as Civics and Government Awareness Month in all public schools across the state to bring awareness to this important learning goal.

The ALSDE calls on school leaders to participate, if possible, in activities customized to meet the individual and collective needs of students and the teachers, support staff, and administrators who teach, assist, and lead them on a daily basis.
