CEA ‘Priority Schools” Press Conference
1/7/2015, 6:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Location: Sarah Pyle Academy
501 N. Lombard Street
Wilmington, DE 19801

The Christina Education Association (CEA) will hold a press conference on Wednesday, January 7th to discuss its progress in working with the Christina School District on an alternative to the Delaware Department of Education’s proposed “Priority Schools” plan. The press conference will take place at 6:30 p.m. at Sarah Pyle Academy, prior to the scheduled Christina Board of Education Meeting on January 7 at 7:00 p.m.
Mike Kempski, President of CEA, and educators from each of the schools will be available to answer questions immediately after delivering their remarks. Mr. Kempski feels the changes already underway at Stubbs Elementary, Bancroft Elementary, and Bayard Middle School have established a clear path towards future success.
 “The educators in Bancroft, Bayard, and Stubbs are committed to their students, who are making great strides, and are willing to get even better,” said Kempski. “The results of the University of Delaware’s Comprehensive Success Review clearly support our position.”
