The State of the District Address - Monday, October 25, 2021 & The Brooklyn North Parent Town Hall: Led By Us, For Us - Friday, October 29, 2021

Dear BGHS Community,

The CEC 16 is excited to announce two upcoming opportunities for community collaboration that will strengthen our partnership and help us to better serve our students. The CEC 16 eagerly looks forward to:

  • The State of the District Address on Monday, October 25, 2021
    • The Brooklyn North High Schools Superintendent Janice Ross and the Community Superintendent Yolanda Martin will join us this upcoming Monday, October 25, 2021, starting at 6:00 PM, to provide the annual State of the District Address. The participation of the parents and entire school communities of District 16 is important to ensure that all are informed and able to ask questions and expose concerns in a collaborative manner in order for our district to continue to improve. Please assist us to share the attached notice in English and Spanish with your families and overall school communities. 
  • The Brooklyn North Parent Town Hall: Led By Us, For Us on Friday, October 29, 2021
    • Community Education Councils in Brooklyn North have come together to form a coalition of parent leaders determined to change the narrative of our underserved communities. The Councils will meet for the first time via teleconference next Friday, October 29, 2021, between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM, to listen to and learn about our communities' concerns, and collaboratively devise effective courses of action in our partnership.  

It is essential to hear the voices of all stakeholders, especially other parents, as we open a new forum that we hope will lead to more effective solutions to eradicate the oppressive conditions under which our communities live.

Please join us and encourage other school families to come, share concerns, participate in future collaborative conversations, and assist in planning solid next steps that would help change the history of neglect, marginalization, and inequity our communities have long endured.
