  • Educational Affairs Presentation January 2023

    With co-chair Leah Mulhearn presiding, the Educational Affairs Committee convened for its monthly meeting in-person and via Zoom on Tuesday, Jan. 17. The agenda included two items: district social emotional and mental health programs and the cultural proficiency and equity student ambassadors program.  CSD Director of Student Services Jessica Keene presented on the social emotional and mental health programs available in the district. A resource review was done for each school building and all of the new programs started this school year were discussed. The district has increased our existing partnership with Aldersgate Youth Service Bureau and added three new mentoring programs at Cheltenham High School and Cedarbrook Middle School. The presentation also touched on the support that Student Services provides to district students and families through holiday assistance and services offered to immigrant families. For the second presentation, district consultant Carmina Taylor and senior Mia Cruz delivered an update on the activities and opportunities provided via the now four-year-old cultural proficiency and equity student ambassadors program, including upcoming programs and next steps to grow the program at CHS and CBK.
