The Ward 5 Council on Education (W5COE) will hold its monthly meeting at Michigan Park Christian Church on Tuesday Nov 16, 2010 at 6:30 pm.
Please read about this organization below as it was described by Darin Allen who serves as as the Community Relations Officer for the W5COE.
The Ward 5 Council on Education was established in January 1989 as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. It was established in the District of Columbia by Clyde B. Richardson and former Ward 5 Board of Education member Angie King Corley. These two Ward 5 citizens inspired others to come together to support our schools. The organization has become well known for its active role in Ward 5 education issues. Raenelle Humbles Zapata is now the current president of the council.
The Ward 5 Council on Education was founded to improve the quality of education in Ward 5 schools. It achieves this goal through enabling parents, teachers, citizens, students, and educators/administrators an opportunity to share their views on school needs and issues with the Ward 5 State School Board Representative. The Council provides awards and scholarships to students, parents, and teachers from each Ward 5 public school for outstanding achievements during the school year.
