The NAACP has recently released Framework for Providing All Students an Opportunity to Learn.  It is worth reading and sharing.

Also from the school district's website you can see what changes are proposed and related information including JCMO survey results:
High School Facilities & 21st Century Education:  Survey Results A reminder to Key Communicators that we have posted results of initial surveys to determine community understanding and support of potential changes at the 9-12 grade levels.  The initial survey was implemented in May and June as a "stopping off point" to learn what people know, what they hope to see, and what else we need to share with them.  Please visit this link and look in the survey result file at the bottom of the page:
