"The Butte Civic Learning Partnership is a model other counties can replicate. Its achievements, creativity, and county-wide impact make it a leader in this statewide movement” -- California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye
Butte County was one of the first to pilot a Civic Learning Partnership, an effort driven by local court and school leaders to connect more students to the role of the judicial branch and the work of state courts. In its first year, Butte County became the first county in the state to have civic learning resolutions adopted by every school district.
