RSVP for the DOE's School Diversity Town Hall Meeting on June 21With a city as diverse as ours, the Department of Education believes in supporting inclusive learning environments that reflect the millions of people who call New York City their home.

We believe that all City students benefit from diverse schools where all students, families, and school staff members are supported and welcomed. It is this core belief that is essential to our Diversity in New York City Public Schools plan.

Now it’s time for us to hear what YOU believe.

For the last time this school year, the City’s School Diversity Advisory Group is holding a town hall meeting to discuss and evaluate the DOE’s approach to school diversity.

The Advisory Group, which makes recommendations about citywide school policies and practices to the Mayor and the DOE, is asking students, parents, educators, and community members to participate in small group discussions to share how City schools can best reflect our communities.
