The next Community Education Council District 21 (CEC 21) meeting will be held March 20 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Intermediate School 228 (IS 228) – David A. Boody, 228 Avenue S between West 4th Street and West 5th Street. Public comment is encouraged at this meeting.
District 21 Superintendent Isabel DiMola will discuss “Common Core Implementation in NYC” and the “Contract for Excellence (C4E)” in her Superintendent’s Report.
The guest speaker will be NYC consultant and public school advocate Karen Sprowal, who will discuss “Class Size Matters.” Sprowal made headlines in 2011 when her son, Matthew, struggling in an elite charter school, was transferred to a public school, where he then began to thrive.
Entertainment will be provided by the students of the IS 228 Jazz Band. There will also be door prizes and light refreshments. Parking is available in the school yard.
