Connecting Community and Schools

At the Vernon John Middle School, New Orleans community members and youth are coming together to design a community-led effort to improve education. Community and Site Development consultant Dr. Doris Williams led the March 15th meeting to reach the following goals:

  • To inform parents what the Algebra Project can add or bring to Petersburg
  • To ensure that every child Kindergarten through 12th learn math/Algebra
  • To ensure that each parent is involved with what is best for his/her child
  • To ensure that there will be some kind of evaluation for the high school AP program
  • To clarify what can be done to help others
  • To disseminate information concerning AP classes to parents

Funded by the Ford Foundation, this work will continue into the remaining school year. Next meeting is scheduled for April 19th, 9AM to 1PM. If you are interested in attending, please contact Ernest at ebrooks@algebra.org.
