Youth in Government

More than 80 students from all four Pleasanton high schools participated in the annual Youth in Government Day. The students shadowed city and school district staff, including the city manager and superintendent positions, school principals, and police and fire chiefs. To start the day, students and participating staff joined in the City Council chambers for introductions. Following a lunch break at the Veteran's Memorial Building, students broke into groups to discuss the youth commission's focus on finding life balance.

To complete the student involvement and the merging of the city and schools, there will be a joint City Council and school board meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at the school district board room, located at 4665 Bernal Ave.
