Join the Wilmington Parent Advocacy Council for Education

Filed in Delaware by on September 23, 2015

If you live in Wilmington and are a parent, grandparent, foster parent, guardian, primary caregiver, student or just plain concerned community member — this is a newly formed group that is going to advocate for better equity, access and educational opportunity for Wilmington kids. From the brochure:

The PACE Network joins adults, youth and educators together to imagine, create and advocate for equity, access and more effective learning in schools and community places. The Vision is to ensure all Wilmington youth safely attend quality early learning programs, read on level by 3rd grade, excel in reading, math, science, social studies, technology, arts, sports, extracurricular activities and graduate high school prepared for college/career success. The PACE Network aims to shape a unified voice to advocate for Wilmington students. Families and city residents play a critical role in our children’s education. Network membership is open to parents, grandparents, community members, guardians, foster parents, educators in early care, pre-schools, districts and charter schools enrolling Wilmington students.

The PACE network will provide training to those who want to better advocate for kids in schools, work with advocates to get to school board meetings and be heard there and provide a strong information resource on current education topics and issues. You can see the full brochure here.

This is a crucial and much needed service for city parents and residents. The long-term survical of the City of Wilmington is completely tied to ensuring that good educational opportunities are available to city kids and that city parents (and others) have the tools to be better able to advocate for city kids.
