Mayor Kenney appointed nine members to the Philadelphia Board of Education (BOE) in April 2018. Beginning in July 2018, the Board will oversee the School District of Philadelphia.

In April and May 2018, the new Board members will participate in a series of community listening sessions across the city. Students, parents, educators and residents are invited to attend these events and share their views on the challenges and opportunities facing public education in Philadelphia.

The format of the listening session will include an opening plenary, followed by small group discussions and a closing activity.

Please note:

  • Registration is suggested but not required. All are welcome.
  • Childcare and homework help will be provided for young children in attendance.
