San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) and the District African American Advisory Council (DAAAC) are holding the first Black Family Summit on Saturday, July 20 at San Gorgonio High School.
A free breakfast will be provided for the first 200 people to register. All Summit participants will receive a free lunch.
The event begins at 9:30 a.m. After the keynote speaker, participants will rotate through three sessions of special programs and parent leadership workshops, all of which are geared toward helping African-American families navigate the school system in a way that leads to excellence for their children.
Black Honor Roll students from the District’s middle and high schools will be honored along with African-American elementary students who met or exceeded the standards on the CAASSP standardized tests.
The Black Family Summit will end with special giveaways to help prepare students for the new school year.
Families are encouraged, but not required, to RSVP by July 15 to Sharon Ellis, Department of Equity and Targeted Student Achievement, at (909) 473-2098.
San Gorgonio High School is located at 2299 Pacific Street in San Bernardino.
