Dr. Sylvia Rousseau – Speaking a Language That Everyone Can Understand

On January 8th, Committee For Racial Justice is offering the opportunity to hear from Dr. Sylvia Rousseau who has been interim co-superintendent of our SMMUSD for the 2016 fall semester.  She has put forth an action plan to take specific steps toward our school district’s goal of equity for all students through excellence. We are looking forward to learning more from this gifted professor at USC’s Rossier School of Education who has built a longstanding reputation as an expert on diversity, urban school reform and school leadership,

Dr. Rousseau is known to many locally since from 1993 to 2000 she was the principal of Santa Monica High School, which under her leadership achieved one of the largest API gains in California. She reduced the school’s drop out rate and increased graduation and college entrance among African American and Latino students. She was lauded by teachers, students and parents for building a strong sense of community on the campus, promoting intercultural understanding and nonviolent conflict resolution, and raising academic expectations and achievement.

Come and find out how you can help bring about the proposed “next steps” in moving our school district toward achievement for all students,  with a focus on including those who have been marginalized.

This is part of an ongoing monthly workshop series sponsored by the Committee For Racial Justice.

Co-sponsored by Virginia Ave. Park; the African American Parent, Staff, Student Support Group; and the Church in Ocean Park.

6:00-8:30 pm (potluck supper at 6:00pm & program at 6:30pm)
