Newark Education Subcommittee Affinity Group: Charter School Deep Dive
This program was rescheduled from the original May 16th date.
Join us as we take a deep dive into the charter school sector in Newark. Our guest, Michele Mason the Executive Director of the Newark Charter School Fund, will ground us in data and the current state of play for the charter sector in Newark. Her presentation will be followed by an engaging panel of Newarkers who are working closest to schools and communities for a discussion on the charter sector from their vantage point, and opportunities for collaboration across what are often artificial lines.
Panelists will include:
- Kaleena Berryman, Abbot Leadership Institute
- Atiya Rashidi, a parent who has children in both traditional district and charter schools
- Dominique Lee, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of BRICK, which operates both district and charter schools
- Dina Velez, Principal at Newark Educators Community Charter School, who came out of the traditional district schools in Newark
