Champions for education and Birmingham City Schools lead their final community meeting tonight at Jackson-Olin High School in the new Campaign for Ed. Are you a parent, student, educator, community leader or a neighbor? You are welcome to join the group at 6 p.m. on August 22 and meet Ed, the new Birmingham Education Foundation.
Yes We Can! Birmingham, a grassroots initiative of the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, set the stage for the creation of the Birmingham Education Foundation. Its promise is to bring the voice of the community to the leadership of Birmingham City Schools.
That voice calls for many important changes and improvements, including these four parts of Ed’s plan for transformation:
– Birmingham Parent University
– College and career-focused high schools
– Professional development for school leaders
– Pre-AP initiative to prepare students for success
Find out more at the meeting tonight or from the Ed website. We invite you to join us in raising your hand, too
