  • “When students are painting, debating, learning about nutrition, doing math, or participating in a theater production, they are not only learning skills but socializing in positive ways with other students and instructors,” says Eliana Bourdier, who is responsible for overseeing afterschool programs at I.S. 230 middle school as #CommunitySchool Director. “That helps children grow so much compared to passively looking at a computer or phone.

Learn more about why Fred is one of the longest serving of the system’s 13,000 bus drivers—who transport 180,000 of our students. [Link in bio] #WeAreDOE
