Friendsgiving at SOF

Friday, November 20th marked School of the Future’s Friendsgiving event organized by our middle school student council members under the advisement of Ms.Ordonez, our MS Spanish teacher. Filled with music by our student DJ Desiree for the afternoon, the cafeteria was transformed into activity/game stations and dance halls. Uniting with after school, our SOF kids were able to fund raise for student council and enjoy their time with friends and reflect on what they were most grateful for. We look forward to more Friendsgiving events at School of the Future!

A Discussion About Academic Tracking

Should schools be tracking students according to academic ability?

 

Please save the date of Tuesday, January 12, 2016 at 6:30pm. District 2 Community Education Council will be hosting a forum on academic tracking at PS 59 (233 E 56th Street), featuring education expert Carol Burris.

Dr. Burris became Executive Director of the Network for Public Education Foundation in August 2015, after serving as principal of South Side High School in the Rockville Centre School District in NY since 2000. Her publications include Detracking for Excellence and Equity (2008) and On the Same Track: How Schools Can Join the 21st Century Struggle against Re-segregation (2014). She regularly expresses her concerns about the misuse and unintended consequences of high-stakes testing on the Washington Post, The Answer Sheet blog.

You can learn more about Dr. Burris and her work at her blog and the National Education Policy Center.

The forum will be followed by CECD2’s January Calendar and Working Business meetings. Agendas will be circulated before the meeting.

Babysitting and light refreshments will be provided.
