OUR BOYS NEED US.
A big announcement is coming Monday.
Over the last several months, Supt. Ray has revealed some sobering statistics involving our African-American male students: they're more likely than their peers to be economically disadvantaged, graduate at lower rates, have lower attendance and earn lower ACT scores than the District average. On
Monday, July 22, Supt. Ray and prominent community leaders will come together to publicly launch a groundbreaking initiative that will help eliminate barriers to achievement for our African-American boys through EQUITY, EDUCATION and EMPOWERMENT. The announcement will be broadcast live on 88.5FM and streamed live on the District's Facebook page. More details coming soon.
