Dear Colleagues
Dear Colleagues, Achieving educational excellence is the goal for all GCS students, but as a district and as a nation, we have known for some time that the traditional education system is often unsuccessful for African American male students. As a district, we’re not content to maintain the status quo. In GCS, we have chosen to focus on two areas where the disparity seems especially great – early literacy skills and student discipline. In 2011, GCS launched the Achieving Educational Excellence for African American Male Students initiative. Since that time, educators in select GCS schools have been working to develop and implement strategies that have shown promise in the nine participating pilot schools. And while we don’t yet have all the answers, we are developing tools, and most importantly, the desire to find new ways of teaching and modifying student conduct so that all students will succeed. I’m pleased that for the 2014-15 school year, all of our elementary schools will focus on making changes that better serve our African American males. To make those changes, teachers must learn new ways of thinking about what goes on in your classrooms and how you connect with the students you teach. In short, that is why you are here this week. Thank you for being a part of this effort. Thank you for being open to change and for being a catalyst for change. I strongly believe that it is within our power to improve the academic success for African American male students. I look forward to hearing about the lives you will impact this year and in the years to come. Sincerely,Maurice “Mo” Green Superintendent
