StoryCorps: A Second Chance
While serving time for robbing a bank, Darius Clark Monroe decided to apologize to the people who were inside the bank on that day, including customer David Ned. Seventeen years later, they sat down to talk about what David’s forgiveness has meant to both of them.
Presented through One Small Step, StoryCorps’ new national effort to encourage people to engage in difficult conversations.

District Leadership Team
There are multiple leadership structures that help to ensure our work with students and families is equitable and done with a spirit of excellence.
The District Leadership Team (DLT), Chaired by Superintendent Rafael Alvarez, is comprised of community members that represent a wide range of constituents around the district.
School Leadership Team
Modeled after the DLT, the School Leadership Team (SLT) is set up to accomplish the same types of tasks but within the school community.
The School Leadership Team (SLT) is a group of people who develop educational policies for their school. They also make sure there are resources to support those policies.
Community Education Council (CEC)
Community Education Councils are a part of New York City's school governance structure. There is a Community Education Council (CEC) for every community school district.
