District 17’s Legislative Lunch & Learn -- “Transforming Schools, One Conversation at a Time”

"On Tuesday, February 9, 2016, a special two-hour conversation entitled a “Legislative Lunch & Learn: Transforming Schools, One Conversation at a Time”” was held in Brooklyn Borough Hall’s Community Room. The goal of this event was to initiate a conversation about the educational challenges of students in temporary housing (STH), a sensitive topic that significantly impacts schools in District 17 as well as our city at- large. This event was collaboratively sponsored by Community School District 17 (CSD 17), Community Education Council 17 (CEC 17), and the Brooklyn South Borough Field Support Center (BFSC). Invitees included federal, state, and city legislative representatives of schools located within CSD 17, school administrators, central NYCDOE administrators, parent members of CEC 17 and the district’s Presidents Council, and representatives of local community boards. Here are highlights of this important conversation."
