Student Poets for DOE Chancellor's Conference

The theme for this year’s Chancellor’s Conference Day on June 3rd is Equity and Access in Education and the DOE is inviting 3-4 students to read their own poems on the subject!


The students can simply record themselves so they do not need to attend. Their poem, however, will be seen by hundreds of DOE staff and leadership!  Please submit your recordings to cmarquez@risingground.org if you wish to participate.


Please see the presentation and recording of the Safety Meeting on May 11th.  This meeting discussed
Covid guidelines, capacity and Internet Safety
