Newark Trust Hosts First Committee of Advocates Meeting of 2014-15
The Newark Trust for Education hosted its first Committee of Advocates meeting of the year on Wednesday, October 22nd with a diverse group of community members, civic leaders and district staff. This meeting focused on the collection and review of initial feedback on Newark's school enrollment process. Participants not only analyzed the obstacles and roadblocks encountered during the enrollment process, they also identified opportunities for moving forward, and were joined by NPS staff members who presented and listened to feedback.
As a broad-based coalition of constituents, the mission of the Trust's Committee of Advocates is to advance public education in Newark and elevate our collective voices in vibrant community conversations to ensure every child has access to a high-quality school option. We look forward to reconvening this committee to review other pertinent policies and issues that support improved student outcomes in Newark Public Schools.
