Community Schools Rally Sept 2015
For years, parents, students, educators and community organizations have advocated for the growth of the community schools strategy in NYC. With 130 new community schools in all five boroughs, the Mayor’s community schools expansion is an ambitious, groundbreaking answer to the public’s call. Community schools work, and we want to get their stories out.
This is truly the Year of the Community School for NYC, and the Coalition for Educational Justice (CEJ) is kicking it off with a CELEBRATION.
What are we celebrating?
-130 new community schools reaching 50,000 kids with exciting new programs, expanded learning time, and vibrant partnerships
-Struggling schools in under-resourced communities are finally get the help they've needed
-DOE moving forward on Community Schools Policy that will define and ground NYC communityschools for years to come
-Community-based organizations from across the city united to ensure the success of community schools
Join parents from CEJ and from community schools across the city in celebrating all the wonderful things that are happening in their schools. We invite you to come and support our communityschool across New York City.
