As a result of our concerns for the challenges in our students’ lives, and because of our concerns for the safety of all children, I convened a meeting of high-level city officials, including the Chief of Police and the County Sheriff, to discuss ways in which we can work together to keep kids safe. It is unfortunate that we have a handful of students who are disruptive in school, on buses and in the community. Some of our children need placements in alternative settings where they can receive special support. I am adding additional alternative school seats for this reason.
Parents, please take time this month to enroll your “top grade” children in MPS schools. At the very least, spread the word to your neighbors and friends that it is time to choose – and that the choice should be MPS!
