Tragic situations offer an opportunity for change and progress. We look at the ongoing exchange of thoughts about our schools in the wake of the tragic murder of George Floyd as an opportunity for progress. Recently, many of you have been asked to support a CHANGE.ORG petition where a statistic about our school district is shared regarding a lack of inclusion of African American History in the curriculum.

June 3, 2020 - Dear Students, Staff, Families and Residents: The recent death of George Floyd is a sad and disturbing moment in our country’s history that sparked fear, anger, and protests across the nation. We acknowledge the pain and anger that so many in our community and our nation are feeling. As you may be aware, a Wayne Township Public School student recently made a hateful comment on social media about African-Americans. We abhor any racist statements made by any member of our school community as we understand that such statements will only serve to fuel hatred and further divide us. The matter is being addressed by the District under applicable policies and has been referred to the Wayne Police Department for further review.
With consideration for the public during the current health crisis, the Board of Education will virtually open the meeting to the general public and the public is invited to participate and comment through the district's virtual software platform. This meeting will also stream live on Channel 77. Click to learn more.
