Expanding the Village

Expanding the Village

Given the complexity and persistence of the issues that our children face, change will only become visible when all segments of South Bend join in collaborative thought and action.  There is much that needs to be done and we should not be blind to the difficulty of the work that is before us.  Our office is grateful for the opportunity to serve the African-American students and families of this district and we are encouraged by the efforts of many supporters in and around the South Bend Community School Corporation. Although we are not perfect, we are passionate about eradicating the disparities currently present in our educational system. 

 

We all know that it “takes a village” to raise children who will flourish where they are planted.   Together we are greater than the sum of our individual contributions and the African-American Student / Parent Services Department welcomes you to join us in achieving our goal of erasing the academic disparities that plague our community.  With your help we will continue to motivate our students toward higher levels of academic and personal performance, while helping them realize the future they deserve.
