Government in Action

A few years ago, Legislator Schaefer visited a CPHS Government class where students proposed the idea of using monies from the Community Revitalization Project to fund the revamping of the school’s weight room. Recently, the current Government class was invited by Legislator Laura Schaefer to watch the session of the Nassau County Legislature, where the Legislature voted on the bill to actually fund the proposed upgrade to the high school's weight room. The funding for the weight room passed the full Legislature and was approved. It now goes to the Comptroller's office for further review. The experience also offered students a tour of the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building, the chance to meet with Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and to see government in action.
