Say Yes to Education announced in December that it would be partnering with Buffalo schools.
There are essentially three elements involved: a shared governance model for the schools; reallocating resources to provide more services to more children; and -- the piece that grabbed parents' attention the most -- a college tuition guarantee.
Where do things stand right now with Say Yes' plans for Buffalo? When and where will we start seeing changes? How will the tuition guarantee work?
All those questions -- and more -- will be answered in a webinar at 7 p.m. Thursday, here at www.buffalonews.com.
You're invited to join us for the session -- just take a minute to register (for free, of course) at www.buffalonews.com/webinar.
Several key people will join me on Thursday: Say Yes President Mary Anne Schmitt-Carey, Interim Superintendent Amber Dixon, School Board President Lou Petrucci and parent leader Sam Radford.
I'll be moderating the panel discussion, so that means I get to ask them pretty much anything. And I want to ask what you want me to ask.
What do you want to know about Say Yes? This is your chance to get your questions answered.
There are two ways you can do that.
Post them in a comment here, email them to me at email@example.com, send me a Facebook message at facebook.com/mary.pasciak, or tweet me @MaryPasciak. I'll make sure the most common and most important questions are addressed during the webinar.
We will also be taking reader questions directly for a few minutes at the end of the webinar on Thursday. Looking forward to seeing you then!
