The Black Educator Network (BEN) is in its second school year. Born out of a necessity for Black employees to support each other, the Network hosts meetings the fourth Saturday of the month. Here employees from the WCCUSD get together to discuss a wide variety of topics that affect them, and translate to student achievement.
The second meeting of this school year on Saturday, September 26, 2020. We were honored that Dr. Sharroky Hollie visited via Zoom, and had a discussion with the Network about what is needed to do this work on behalf of all students. There was also a discussion about liberating students so they have the highest potential at academic success.
All employees of the WCCUSD are invited to the BEN meetings. Not only is this an opportunity for support, but an opportunity for fellowship and to learn. The Black Educator Network is a prime example of employees coming together to make a difference for themselves and the students they serve.
