PPSD Community Meetings - happening this week!

This week, the Providence Public Schools is holding six Community Meetings to allow opportunities for us to get in-depth answers to questions about school closings, student assignment, teacher hiring and firing, or other changes that may happen as a result of the city’s financial crisis. Click on the flier to the right for more information.

These are taking place at the following locations and times:

Juanita Sánchez Educational Complex
182 Thurbers Avenue
Tuesday, March 22, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, March 26, 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Classical High School
770 Westminster Street
Wednesday, March 23, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, March 26, 9:00 - 10:30 a.m.

Veazie Street Elementary School
211 Veazie Street
Thursday, March 24, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, March 26, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.

Word from the district is that these aren't taking place in the schools that have been slated for closure and/or reorganization (Flynn Elementary, Asa Messer Elementary, Asa Messer Annex, Windmill Street School, and Bridgham Middle School) due to ADA accessibility requirements.

I am going to try hard to make it to at least one--likely one or two of the Saturday sessions. Anyone who goes tonight, tomorrow or Thursday, please post a comment so we can have some immediate first hand reports.
