A Message from Dr. Mark Gleichauf, Superintendent of Schools

June 9, 2020

In January 2018, the Brooklyn City Schools embarked on a comprehensive strategic planning process. Over 80 stakeholders representing students, teachers, classified staff, administrators, parents, community and business came together to develop a five-year strategic plan which has guided District work. This overall plan included a mission, vision, areas of focus with strategies and beliefs statements.

Two of those belief statements adopted in this strategic plan are as follows:

  • All students deserve an environment that appreciates, welcomes, and respects diversity
  • Everyone should feel emotionally and physically safe

At this challenging time in our society, the school district must bring the focus on how we can be true to these Brooklyn City Schools belief statements for our students, our staff and our community.

The Brooklyn City Schools are committed to these beliefs. The Brooklyn staff members have and will continue to support our students in any way possible. The District must continuously monitor how we create this environment of respect. To that end, I will be suggesting to the new superintendent that a new strategic plan committee around “Diversity and Understanding” be created starting for the 2020-2021 school year.

As educators, we are in an opportune spot to help model the mindset of diversity and understanding for our students. As we finish up the 2019-2020 school year, we are committed to making 2020-2021 a year of respect and acceptance. We embrace that responsibility and want our community to know we will take actions to help support our Brooklyn students.

Thank you and have a good week.

Dr. Mark Gleichauf
