The BlackBoard of West Contra Costa will be sponsoring a public WCCUSD candidate forum in El Sobrante on September 22nd (Thursday).
The Sponsoring Group
The BlackBoard is a group formed a couple of years ago by black community members to make sure the black student achievement gap didn’t get lost amidst all the competing goals of the district by forming a group to specialize in this issue. The group focuses broad attention on analyzing the issue and developing and promoting solutions. Currently, the president of the group is WCCUSD ex-principal, Gloria Scoggins, and the vice-president is long-time WCCUSD education advocate, Scottie Smith. They will have a website soon.
