Government and Public Administration

Garland ISD: CTE Government & Law Cluster

People in public service operate schools, parks, airports, water, utilities and much more. Elected officials represent the voters in government and civil servants enforce rules and regulations. This cluster is part of the Law and Criminal Justice course of study at the Lakeview Centennial High School College & Career Magnet.  Lakeview's program will provide an avenue for students to become involved in the community, gain direct experience in their field of interest, develop a greater sense of the legal system (both criminal and civil), and participate in competitions.
