New Charter School For Point Richmond

A dynamic group of parents, entrepreneurs, and educators is coming together to develop a new, small-scale public charter school beginning with grade 7 and growing to grade 12. Known as the Richmond Urban Institute, this new-from-the-ground up secondary school will put hands-on civic improvement and leadership training at the heart of the learning process. Theyare seeking a facility in the Pt. Richmond/Marina Bay area that will ultimately accommodate 400 students (66 students per grade level, in classrooms of ~ 22 students each.)

The school will draw on the resources of the whole East Bay—including UC Berkeley––to create internships and service-learning options focused on: Health & Biosciences; Environmental Design & Architecture; and Engineering & Technology. The school could open as early as Fall, 2004––depending on the interest and support of parents & community members. If you have children—or just care deeply about our community’s future

Awfully short notice, but this event will be today October 18th at 10:30 to 1:00 pm at the Baltic at 135 Park Place in Point Richmond. For more information, contact Lana Husser at (510) 232-6885 or LanaHusser@aol.com

Brunch & refreshments will be available for purchase
