Castleberry High School Students Present to Fort Worth City Council

 
  (front to back, left to right) Councilman Sal Espino, James Ivey, Sydney E., Mayor Betsy Price, Daelynn R., Erica P., Celeste C., Dylan P., David A., Frank F., Brianna S., Celeste S., Natalie R., and City of Fort Worth TPW representatives Chandra Muruganandham, and Brian Jahn  Castleberry High School students from Mr. James Ivey’s blended learning class presented a Traffic Proposal at the Castleberry ISD Board of Education meeting on December 14, 2015. They then gave the same presentation to the Fort Worth City Council on January 26, 2016.

The 10 students from the English 2 Pre-Advanced Placement classes presented their final presentation, “We Need a Light,” which was part of their persuasion unit, to the Fort Worth City Council. This presentation was the culmination of nearly four months of work for these students. They were tasked with developing a persuasive presentation and a solution for the intersection of Churchill Road and White Settlement Road. Some students often cross the street there early mornings for Track and Cross Country.

Initially, the classes were assigned to investigate the issue, and then persuade the City Council to install a traffic light at the intersection. However, after collecting data (both personally and from the city of Fort Worth) and consulting other parties, the students found the best solution was a flashing, 24-hour beacon, as well as a school zone designation on White Settlement Road, during school hours.

Following their presentation, the City Council asked the head of the Transportation and Public Works Department if funds were available, and how long it would take for the project to be completed. The Department funds are available from a 2014 Bond program, and the project could be completed in 8-10 weeks.

The Fort Worth City Council was extremely impressed with how the students took the effort to research the problem and provide a viable solution, instead of just presenting a problem or complaint.
