It is my objective as Superintendent to place trainees in schools that give them the best chance to succeed.Over the course of 6-months, my group and I have actually gathered feedback from over 500 locals, including parents, educators, and faith leaders. The input we received will inform our last strategy. I can share that the strategy will include some school closures, as many of our older buildings are in extremely poor condition while we have area available in our newer district facilities.Tomorrow, when I share the specific information of the strategy and how we will support households, the Camden City School District will take another action towards fulfilling our guarantee of Putting Students First.” Copyright © 2021 WPVI-TV.
