In an continued effort to make our students college and career ready we are creating partnerships with local tutoring agencies, college representatives, and local unions. To ensure our students meet the A-G requirements we will continue with our 2-2-2 Plan.The 2-2-2 Plan is attached to this letter please sign and return the second page. In an effort to create more opportunities for career bound students, we are currently in talks with local unions and city agencies to create a pipeline directly into trade unions.
In the 2017-18 School year we will be working to establish our African American Parent Club. The purpose of the African American Parent Club will include, but isn’t limited to: establishing equal opportunity, fundraising, new facilities, and advising administration on how to improve campus conditions.
We will also be continuing our African American Male Leadership Course, the Black Student Union, and Oiler Alumni Association. We are also introducing new programs such as: RHS Majorette Dance Squad, the African American Literature course, and the African American Female Leadership Course known as ‘Seat at the Table.’ Below is a chart listing the programs and important dates.
