The Brooklyn City Schools hosted its first in a series of Finance Forums earlier this week, where the community had the opportunity to listen to important student and District successes along with valuable financial information. Led by Superintendent Dr. Mark Gleichauf, the presentation included the most recent accomplishments on the state report card including strides made in the Progress and Graduation Rate metric. The second part of Dr. Gleichauf’s remarks included the need for Issue 2, the District’s No New Taxes Renewal Levy on the November 5th Ballot. An emphasis was placed on the fact that Issue 2 will not increase people’s taxes since it is a Renewal Levy that was first passed in 2015 by voters in our community. After the presentation, those in attendance had the opportunity to ask questions and sign up for various aspects of the Support Our Schools levy campaign committee. The next Finance Forum will be held on Wednesday, October 16th at 7 p.m. at the Acres Community Center. Thank you for your continued support of the Brooklyn City Schools.
