HUMBOLDT COMMUNITY SCHOOL SOCIAL STUDIES VISION: HCSD students will understand and apply to their personal and public experiences and ability to analyze social issues, participate in civic and community life, and recognize the changing social circumstances as active and informed citizens in a culturally diverse and interdependent world. Students will develop these skills through the five content areas: behavioral sciences, economics, geography, history, and political science. (2010)
