The Miami-Dade School Board unanimously approved three items proposed by Board Chair Perla Tabares Hantman encouraging WLRN Television and Radio to keep developing educational programming that will enhance and support Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ educational programs, and two endorsing National Parental Involvement Day and National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month.
“For more than 65 years, WLRN has been an educational resource for the community and the classroom. WLRN provides and creates accessible, diverse and family-friendly content through community engagement and online resources,” said Ms. Hantman. “Additionally, I am proud to be able to bring forth initiatives that celebrate the powerful contributions parents and caregivers provide at school and home to support student success, and also that encourage a year-round awareness of bullying prevention throughout Miami-Dade County Public Schools.”
The Board voted to:
- Endorse the efforts of the Superintendent and WLRN Management to develop programming, initiatives, and opportunities that will enhance and support M-DCPS’ educational programs.
- Endorse October 2015 as National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month.
- Endorse November 19, 2015 as National Parent Involvement Day in Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
