The Newark Trust for Education is holding community forums to:
- Gain community feedback on information presented during the Mayor's community conversations on the return to local control
- Inform community members about the process to return of local control and other issues relevant to this year's election
- Provide community members an opportunity to inform questions for candidates running for election to the NPS Advisory Board
- Inform recommendation to the Mayor and NPS Advisory Board chair.
Each forum will focus one of the following questions:
Q1: What information is necessary to inform your vote?
Q2: In consideration of local control, what are the qualities necessary for a strong and effective advisory board? Does the type of board, elected or appointed, make a difference? If so, what are the pros and cons of each?
Q3: As local control emerges, what are the key initiatives you believe are important to implement for attaining your vision of an effective public school system in Newark?
Don't forget to register for our candidates forum.
