In preparation for April 5th's NPS Advisory Board Candidate's Forum the Newark Trust for Education is holding two Community Sessions:

Saturday, March 25, 2017, from noon to 2 pm, hosted by La Casa de Don Pedro at St. Lucy's Church, 118 7th Ave., Newark, NJ 07104

Monday, March 27, 2017, from 6 to 8 p.m., hosted by the Boys and Girls Club of Newark, 1 Avon Ave., Newark, NJ 07108

The purpose of the smaller community forums are to:

  • Gain community feedback on information presented during the Mayor's community conversations on the return to local control.
  • 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 the following topics:

What information is necessary to inform your vote?

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?
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?
