Black Minds Matter!

Here’s some preliminary information about the meeting from Landon Dickey, Special Assistant to the Superintendent for African American Achievement & Leadership. (Learn more about Landon Dickey here.)

“The theme for the first meeting is “Black Minds Matter: Empowering Our Own to Start the Year Strong.”

Along with welcoming old and new members to a new year for the AAPAC, we will:

  • hold a gallery walk demonstrating the goals of our different subcommittees,
  • provide key tips and information for taking advantage of Back to School events and following your child’s academic progress, and
  • share the AAPAC 2015 – 2016 Operating Guide the Parent Organization Subcommittee developed over the summer and a proposed statement from the AAPAC in support of the new math sequence.

FYI: Dinner and childcare will be provided… and ALL parents, grandparents, guardians of Black students are invited! That includes mixed race families, and non-Black parents of Black kids. We all invested in the success of our kids.

If you have questions or would like more information, contact Landon Dickey at SFUSD. I look forward to seeing you there! In the meantime…

What issues do you think the AAPAC should address in the coming year? How can AAPAC parents work in partnership with the district to bring needed changes to ALL our schools to ensure all Black kids in the district have access to high quality educational opportunities?
