Newark Trust Helps to Launch Marin Middle School’s Therapeutic Learning Center
Thank you to Principal Maria Ortiz and her staff at Luis Muñoz Marin Middle School for inviting the Newark Trust for Education to help to launch the school's new Therapeutic Learning Center (TLC). The Therapeutic Learning Center was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Funders Collaborative for High Quality School Options, which is managed by the Newark Trust for Education.
The Center is modeled after similar rooms in schools throughout the country, except, unlike many other centers, Marin Middle School's center is not exclusively geared toward special education students.
Newark Charter Compact: United for Progress
Last month, charter schools throughout Newark recommitted to the Newark Charter Compact, an annual statement of shared principles, vision and collaboration.
The Compact, issued and supported by the Newark Charter Schools Fund, calls for all signatory schools to commit to high standards, transparent, equitable and accountable growth, and participation in the district's innovative universal enrollment initiative (One Newark Enrolls).
Newark GradNation Summit: Expanding Educational Pathways
When Yartiza Duperoy, an active member of the Newark Trust's High School Policy Advisory Group (HSPAG), appeared on a panel at the Newark GradNation Summit at Rutgers-Newark last month, she offered a familiar but nevertheless impactful refrain: Newark students must have a bigger role in shaping education policy.
"Newark, particularly nowadays, is often clouded by this negative aura and students get hidden under it all. But Newark is the most talented place there is and if you give those students a chance they will surpass all expectations," she said.
