Upcoming parent conference and class size lawsuit!

This Saturday, April 10, Class Size Matters is sponsoring a citywide parent conference with two major themes: The Overcrowding crisis and Kindergarten waitlists; and building bridges with charter school parents. The latter panel is co-sponsored by the NY Charter Parents Association.

We will also offer workshops on PTAs, School Leadership Teams, and the new Chancellor’s regulations; how to ensure your special education child receives the services s/he needs; toxic schools; the rights and responsibilities of Community Education Councils; Title 1 and parent involvement: and how to advocate for your school and reach out to the media.

All sessions are provided free of charge.

When: Saturday, April 10 from 9:30 AM-3:30 PM.
Where: School of the Future; 127 E. 22 St. (between Park and Lexington.)

Here is a flyer you can post or distribute in your school. Be there or be square!

Also, next Monday, arguments will be heard in our lawsuit against the city for its failure to reduce class size.

When: Monday April 12, 9:30 AM
Where: Supreme Court Bronx County Courthouse (Grand Concourse and 161st Street) before Justice John Barone.

Join us if you can and show your support! For more about our lawsuit, which we filed in January with the UFT, the NAACP, the Hispanic Federation, and other parents and parent groups, check out on the Class Size Matters website here.
