Families in Detroit have a new resource to help them make decisions about children’s education.
The Community Education Commission will release its Detroit Parents’ Guide to Schools for the 2018-2019 school year Aug. 2 at Wayne County Community College District downtown. The book will be presented during a school enrollment fair, where about 150 schools will be represented, at the campus between noon and 3 p.m.
“We are working together as a city in unprecedented ways to deliver high-quality information and options to Detroit’s families,” says Community Education Commission Chair Monique Marks. “One of the commission’s roles is to champion additional resources that help more families and students get the best education they can in Detroit.”
Formed in May, the Community Education Commission is a non-profit designed to support students through increased after-school programming, transportation, and improved academics.
Also available online, the Detroit Parents’ Guide to Schools describes educational options and resources.
Parents like Emerald Burk say they’re happy about the guide’s publication and plan to make good use of it.
“I grew up here in Detroit, attended and graduated from a Detroit school, so I’ve always been committed to my two girls attending schools here in the city,” Burk says. “As a parent, I appreciate finally there being one place where I can see all of the schools open in Detroit, and actually understand what my options are for my girls.”
