May 12, 2014 — City of Gary announcement —
Gary city officials will, as previously announced, host a Community Conversation on Education for the city’s youth. That program will be held on May 22 beginning at 5 p-m at IU Northwest.
Back in March, Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson said the city would partner with the National League of Cities and the U.S. Department of Education to discuss strategies to advance learning, enhance student engagement and improve schools.
Breakout sessions focus on — among other topics — after school programs, college and career readiness, transportation and social services.
The city of Gary is joining 13 other cities conducting similar Community Conversations on education under the federal – National League of Cities partnership.
