• Choose Civility Initiative

    The Choose Civility Initiative by the Calaveras County Office of Education is focused on making our schools and community a more civil environment for all.  Students need to see adults modeling for them how to act in a civil manner while conducting their business.  We are asking all community members to step up and embrace the rules of civil conduct listed on the posters.

    Posters are being placed in all classrooms and in the community in the hopes of reminding people how to act in a civil manner.  The principles listed on the poster are:



    Inspiration for this initiative comes from P.M.  Forni’s book Choose Civility: The Twenty-Five Rules of Considerate Conduct and the Stanislaus County Office of Education.  Kathy Northington, County Superintendent of Schools, has been out in the community speaking with groups about the “Choose Civility” initiative. If you would like Kathy to speak at a meeting or group of people, please contact Calaveras County Office of Education. 

    If you have a business and would like to partner with CCOE on this project, or you would like to support the initiative through financial support you can contact Sharon Ciccone at 736-6013 or sciccone@ccoe.k12.ca.us. ( Posters are available upon request.)
