Civics Classes

Mrs. Kravitz Civics’ students

On December 1, 2009, five students from each of the seven Civics classes offered at Rutland High School were asked to attend a Skype video chat with Senator Leahy. This was Rutland High School’s first chat with the Senator. The students along with their professor, Ms. Jennifer Kravitz, and Principal, Mr. Bill Olsen, discussed issues such as health care reform, Afghanistan, Vermont troops, the economy, energy conservation and farming programs in Vermont. This chat was introduced to Rutland High School after a successful online discussion with Rutland Middle School last February, where young students benefitted greatly from speaking with the Senator.
