Mayor Brown Emphasizes Quality Education During School Tour
BUFFALO – Mayor Byron Brown today toured the Hamlin Park Elementary School with Buffalo Public Schools Superintendent Dr. James A. Williams.
The school was renovated in Phase One of the Joint Schools Construction Board's school reconstruction project. Renovations in the school include a new classroom addition, which features air conditioning and an access elevator for the disabled. The school's auditorium has also been renovated and refurbished.
In addition, the school features a new computer lab and a state-of-the-art Technology Room, as well as a new Home Economics room.
The school's academic curriculum stresses literacy and math studies.
"The Hamlin Park Elementary School is an excellent example of the success of the city's reconstruction project, which has provided these students with a learning environment that will enhance and strengthen their overall learning experience," stated Mayor Brown. "If our students are to achieve academically, we must provide the proper setting for them to learn."
In addition to regular school activities, the school hosts community meetings.
"Educating our children is the most important thing we can do as a community," Dr. Williams said. "As we begin to implement our new academic achievement plan, I am very pleased to have Mayor Brown as a partner. Joining together to focus on student achievement will help secure Buffalo's future."
In December 2005, the Board of Education adopted the Academic Achievement Plan that focuses on literacy at all grade levels and in all subject areas.
"I applaud Dr. Williams and the Board of Education for enacting this important academic program," said Mayor Brown. "This plan is consistent with my A+ Education plan that I released during my campaign for Mayor, noting that all of our students must be able to meet New York State standards for reading and math."
