Students from several IUSA member districts are among those working as pages at the Indiana statehouse. In Indiana, students from sixth through 12th grade may serve as a Senate page for one day in each legislative session. During that time the student receives an excused absence from school as they learn more about state government. Pages observe the legislative session directly from the floor of the Senate. They listen to debates on important policy issues, meet and assist senators with age-appropriate tasks. The Pages also have the opportunity to tour Indiana’s statehouse including the House and Senate chambers, the supreme court, and governor’s office.
Recent pages include students from IUSA member districts in Franklin Township Schools, Indianapolis Public Schools, and Perry Township Schools. Names of students who served as pages during the current legislative session was published in the South Side Times. Follow the link to read more.
