Tuesday September, 2018, 6:00 p.m., East Providence High School
All parents, taxpayers and concerned citizens are welcome
Dear Families and Staff,
I’m writing to remind you about an event taking place on Tuesday, September 18, as part of our community engagement process for the East Providence High School Building Project. On Tuesday, November 6th, residents of East Providence will vote on Question 4, a bond referendum to finance construction of a new high school.
Please join us on Tuesday, September 18, in the East Providence High School Auditorium, for a community forum to learn more about the project, followed by the screening of a powerful documentary film about public education.
6:00 – 6:45 pm: We will host a community forum about Question 4, including a presentation about the scope of the project, as well as an opportunity for audience questions and answers.
6:45 – 8:30 pm: We will screen the documentary feature film, Most Likely to Succeed, which examines the history of public education in the United States and challenges communities to adopt innovative new approaches to teaching and learning. The documentary explores questions of how to modernize an educational system that was developed more than a century ago during the rise of the Industrial Age. It profiles a school in San Diego that is completely rethinking what the experience of going to school looks like and follows students, parents and teachers through a truly unorthodox school experience, asking audiences to consider what sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century. We are presenting the film as part of our educational visioning process, which includes input from parents, students, educators, community members and other stakeholders.
If you require language interpretation for the community forum, please notify us at BuildEPHS@epschoolsri.com.

We hope to see you on Tuesday night!
