LIVERMORE FALLS – Members of the Livermore Elementary School Civil Rights Team gave a presentation and demonstrated through skits how to respect each others’ civil rights.

Adviser Grace Eaton, also a SAD 36 guidance councilor, told SAD 36 directors Thursday night there are now three teams in the district, one at each school.

Students on the elementary school team teach what they have learned to students in the lower grades. The goal is to help all students develop the skills and confidence to prevent and address incidents of hate, violence, bias, prejudice and harassment to improve students’ safety in and out of schools.

“I’m really proud of these kids,” Eaton said.

“How does it feel to make a difference?” SAD 36 Chairman Ashley O’Brien asked the team.

“Cool,” was the students’ resounding answer.

In other business, the board voted to hold one business meeting a month and to use the second meeting for committee meetings and workshops. All meetings are open to the public. Normally, the business meeting will be held on the second Thursday of the month and the committee-workshop meetings on the fourth, interim Superintendent David Wallace said. However, there may be times those meetings may need to change.

He asked the board to adopt the philosophy of the change rather than the dates presented at the last meeting.
