ST. PETERSBURG —The second of two summer community meetings on the status of education for African-American students in the Pinellas School District is scheduled for next Wednesday, July 6 at 6:30 p.m. COQEBS (Concerned Organizations for the Quality Education of Black Students) President Rick Davis invites students, parents, community members and other interested persons to join him, COQEBS members and his board of directors at the Enoch Davis Center to discuss this urgent and important matter.
Media outlets have chronicled the issues facing African-American families and their children enrolled in Pinellas County Schools. As one of two organizations (COQEBS and NAACP Legal Defense Fund) currently engaged in legal actions against the Pinellas County School Board, President Davis remains committed to hearing the concerns of parents, grandparents, students and community representatives as the organization moves forward in its quest to improve the quality of education for black students, reduce discipline, increase the graduation rate and ensure affirmative steps are taken to close the achievement gap.
Representatives from the Juvenile Welfare Board will make a presentation on the various education and family services it provides and assist attendees in need of assistance. Your point of view and your voices are essential to this very important effort.
Please plan to join President Rick Davis and other concerned citizens for this very important community meeting Wednesday July 6 at the Enoch Davis Center starting at 6:30 p.m.
