Neighbor to Neighbor program hosting regional meetings to discuss the African American Male Scholars Initiative

Strengthening family and community engagement is one of our main goals for the district as reflected in our 2013-2018 Strategic Plan.

Our newly created Neighbor to Neighbor program is designed to foster trust, two-way communication, and collaboration among each and every family, community member and stakeholder in Seattle Public Schools.

As part of these efforts, the Department of School Family Partnerships and African American Male Scholars Think Tank (soon to be Advisory Committee) will be hosting regional community meetings to inform and get feedback from students, families, school staff and community stakeholders about the African American Male Scholars Initiative, to inform recommendations to the superintendent.

The African American Male Scholars Initiative (AAMSI) has a focus on the evolution of the district’s teaching, leadership and organizational practices with regard to the success of African American males. It is our belief through this initiative and the recommendations outlined for change, Seattle Public Schools will become a district that believes and supports the idea that all African American males are successful.

Please consider attending one of the regional community discussions.
