Committee For Racial Justice will host Dr. Ben Drati, District Superintendent for SMMUSD schools, and some district staff members who will introduce a new program of project based learning that will start next fall at SAMOHI.  This type of program has been shown to have a strong positive impact on student achievement.  The pilot for this program will have 100 ninth graders involved in a ground-breaking approach to education in our district.  Current 8th grade students need to apply by April 30.

Come and learn about this exciting new program that offers dynamic and effective ways of engaging students in their education.  And see how it fits into the Social Justice Plan for the district for students of all ages.

This event is sponsored by the Committee for Racial Justice.

Co-sponsored by Church in Ocean Park, Virginia Ave Park, and the African American Parent, Student, Staff Support Group.
