Message on Task Force Report from Board President Rachel Relkin
The following is an email that New Rochelle Board of Education President Rachel Relkin sent to the community on the morning of May 25, 2018:
Dear New Rochelle Community,
I am writing to inform you that the Task Force on Reducing Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth has released its final report of recommendations. You can find the report on the City School District of New Rochelle website at www.nred.org.
For anyone who would like to learn more about the recommendations, Dr. Jonathan Brice, the Task Force chair, will present the report at a public meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 30, in the New Rochelle City Council Chambers, City Hall, 515 North Avenue.
This is an important milestone for our community, and the Board of Education looks forward to delving into the recommendations provided. In the meantime, I want to thank Dr. Brice and the dozens of community members who devoted their time, knowledge, experience and dedication toward this vital project. I would also like to thank the members of the public who offered their questions and comments in emails to the Task Force and in the April 14 public meeting.
I am grateful that we can all work together to continue building a community where our children and teenagers can feel secure, experience the joy of learning and grow into healthy young adults.
New Rochelle Board of Education
