Reminder – please take the survey on controlled choice

Dear EVCS families,

This is a quick reminder to please take this short survey about the CEC’s resolution on controlled choice. Our school’s PA and SLT are being asked to weigh in with our point of view on this particular resolution and on the concept and principles of controlled choice in general, so it’s important that we understand where our school community stands.

The survey was developed collaboratively by members of the Diversity Committee and the School Leadership Team and will be used by our Parent Association and SLT to inform our next steps. The survey is 100% anonymous and will remain open until Monday evening, February 8. Thanks again for your participation.

Yours,

Bradley

Record Breaking EVCS Winter Jubilee!

IMG 9549FINAL TALLIES ARE IN!

One week ago today… we nailed it.

We are over-joyed to report that we netted $4000. Over the past several years, we would net around $1000. This year we more than tripled our proceeds. $2500 of the net came from our very first online summer camp auction, the balance came from drink sales, raffles and miscellaneous online donations. All of this without charging an entry fee! Way to go EVCS. Congratulations to everyone and what a show!

On behalf of the EVCS events committee, we want to thank everyone who came out on a Sunday evening to socialize, and those who were thinking of us and helping raise a few dollars for our school.

CEC Resolution on Controlled Choice

Dear EVCS families,

I want to thank everyone who came to one (or both!) of our open forum meetings yesterday to discuss the Community Education Council (CEC) resolution on controlled choice. At both the morning and evening meetings there was honest, open and principled discourse, and I left yesterday feeling energized by our community’s enthusiasm for engaging with this important issue.

The next step in our school’s process is for folks to take a short survey, so we can better understand where our school community stands on this particular resolution, and on the concept and principles of controlled choice in general. The survey was developed collaboratively by members of the Diversity Committee and the School Leadership Team and will be used by our Parent Association and SLT to inform our next steps. The survey is 100% anonymous. Please click here to go to the survey.

Also worth noting is that on this very day a long time ago – February 3, 1964 – students, parents, educators and political leaders across New York City staged what was the largest civil rights protest in US history, against school segregation. It’s poignant that 52 years later we are still grappling with the same issue. Read/listen about the 1964 NYC school boycott here.

The survey will remain open until Monday evening, February 8. More information regarding our school’s position on the resolution and our next steps will follow soon. Thanks again for your participation.

As ever,

Bradley
