Over the weekend, I walked our Newark community for the 6th week in a row. Every time I have the opportunity to hear from you directly, I feel the urgency to start working on solutions for the things that concern the citizens of our great city. Key things that continue to emerge as top of mind concerns are:
- Student safety - Resources for innovative and challenging curriculum - Attracting and keeping our good teachers - A strong desire to know more about what is going on with our schools. Proactive transparency and communication (perhaps via a quarterly newsletter)
Thank you to all that have taken the time to speak with me. It truly does confirm and increases my resolve to work hard for our kids!
