Are you a City middle school student or parent (Grades 6-8) who speaks a language other than English at home?

Do you know middle school students in City schools who are English language learners (ELL)?

On Friday, October 14, Chancellor Carmen Fariña and NY City Council Member Daniel Dromm (District 25) will be hosting a special evening conference for ELL middle school students and their families to discuss college attendance and access:

College Access for All Conference for ELL Middle School Students and Families
Friday, October 14, 2016
Tweed Courthouse – 52 Chambers Street, New York, NY 10007

During this event, attendees will be able to obtain information and materials that middle school students can use to start preparing for college before they even begin high school. Representatives from local colleges, college readiness organizations, and the DOE will be there to meet with students and families alike to help answer any questions or concerns.

 

In addition to remarks from both Chancellor Fariña and Council Member Dromm, the event will also feature:

  • Interpretation services;
  • Hors D’oeuvres, a photo booth, and games; and
  • Free childcare for children who are 4-years old & up.

We firmly believe that all students, whether they speak English at home or not, should graduate from high school ready for college, and this conference will give ELL students and their families the resources and knowledge they will need to start on the path to success after high school.
