602.21 - Citizenship

Being a citizen of the United States, of Iowa, and of the Linn-Mar Community School District entitles students to special privileges and protections. Citizenship requires students to assume civic, economic, and social responsibilities and to participate in their country, state, and school district community in a manner that entitles them to keep these rights and privileges.

As a part of the education program, students will have an opportunity to learn about their rights, privileges, and responsibilities as citizens of this country, state, and school district community. As part of this learning opportunity students are instructed in the elements of productive citizenship and the role quality citizens play in their country, state, community, and school district community.
