meeting at North High

...yesterday of the Mayor, City Manager, and Superintendent with students and faculty.
A listening session
In addition to commenting on what a great school it is and how great the students are, the Mayor comments that they came away with a lengthy to-do list.
Boone: students and faculty concerned that single incidents will become the school's reputation.
"long and deep history of pride" at North
concerned that the seniors' college applications would be impacted by this incident and the perceived reputation on the schools
very few schools in the country where there has not been something that has cast it in a negative light for at least a brief time
O'Connell: a broader issue of how the students interact with one another and how they interact with the police
take a snapshot of what we are doing and what we should be doing
Boone: discussed in superintendent's advisory council
Monfredo: students were devastated; "not what North High School is all about"
Novick: amend to receive recommendations from students and faculty as well as police
Biancheria: not about a school, about all of our schools...program at Friendly House about respect
staff needs our support, students need our support
work with the community...request a list of the programs they have that are specific to respect, tolerance, and violence
