  • Task Force Meeting: New Location

    New Rochelle Task Force Public Meeting Set for April 14

     NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (April 11, 2018) – New Rochelle community members will be able to address the Task Force on Reducing Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth in a public meeting from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, April 14. The meeting will be held in the New Rochelle City Council Chambers on the first floor of New Rochelle City Hall, 515 North Ave.

    Enter the building through the main entrance adjacent to the City Hall Parking Lot.

    Community members can sign up in advance to speak at the meeting by emailing nrtaskforcechair@gmail.com. Attendees will also be able to sign up at the meeting. Those signing up to speak are asked to indicate whether they are students in the schools.

    Speakers will be placed on a list in the order in which their request is received. However, students will be given priority in speaking during the first hour of the public session. Speakers are asked to bring their solution-oriented ideas and recommendations and present them concisely to allow others to have time to present their views.

    “Input from the public is crucial to our mission,” said Dr. Jonathan Brice, chair of the Task Force. “Suggestions, thoughts and ideas from the public will expand our perspective of the New Rochelle community and will inform the recommendations on how we can build community-wide supports for youth and students.”

    The Task Force continues to accept comments and recommendations at the email address at ideas.nrtaskforce@gmail.com.

    In early March, the New Rochelle Board of Education established the 46-member Task Force to recommend measures to ensure the schools and community are safe, nurturing places for the children, teenagers and young adults in the city. Since then, the members have met several times and have visited schools. Members have been assigned to four working groups on the Task Force: district policies and practices, New Rochelle High School policies and practices, City of New Rochelle policies and practices, and community-based resources.

    Recommendations from the Task Force are expected late in April.

  • Latest Update from Dr. Jonathan Brice, Chair of the Task Force on Reducing Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth

    Good Day,

    This was a productive week for the Task Force on Reducing Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth as several members visited three schools - New Rochelle High School and both middle schools, Albert Leonard and Isaac E. Young.

    The Task Force also convened for its third meeting on Monday evening, when a panel discussion focused on disciplinary procedures and the issues surrounding the policy of a closed campus during lunch periods. The panel was comprised of a school administrator, a high school teacher and two high school students, all Task Force members. The discussion was insightful, with members of the Task Force asking questions to better understand the practices and some of the complexity around potential recommendations that will require city, school district and community resources to implement. 

    The next regular meeting of the Task Force will conclude discussion of NRHS practices and turn the focus on City of New Rochelle policies and practices.

    A special Task Force meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 14, in the Whitney M. Young Jr. Auditorium of New Rochelle High School where the members of the community are welcome to make brief public recommendations to the Task Force.

    To sign up in advance to speak at the meeting, email nrtaskforcechair@gmail.com. Please indicate whether you are a student in New Rochelle public schools. Attendees will also be able to sign up at the meeting.

    Speakers will be placed on a list in the order in which they sign up. However, students will be given priority to speak during the first hour.

    Thank you,

    Jonathan Brice, Ed.D.

  • Task Force Chair Dr. Jonathan Brice Updates Community

    Dr. Jonathan Brice, Chair of the Task Force on the Reduction of Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth wrote the following letter to the New Rochelle community on March 13, 2018:

    To the New Rochelle Community,

    On Saturday March 10, 2018 the Task Force on the Reduction of Violence in the Lives of Children and Youth met for its introductory meeting.  The meeting served as an opportunity for Task Force members to meet each other and establish norms for how we will work together and reach consensus on recommendations that we will provide to the Board of Education.  Members of the Task Force selected one of four working groups that will be the focus of their work: district policies and practices, New Rochelle High School policies and practices, City of New Rochelle policies and practices, and community-based resources. Most importantly, the Task Force discussed how we can provide the community with periodic updates about our work and how the community can share their ideas for recommendations with us.

    After each Task Force meeting I will provide the community with an update about the meeting topics and themes of the discussion.  The update will be included in the district's "News from Our Schools" e-newsletter that is sent to the community every Friday.

    Next, we have established an email address that the community can use to provide recommendations for the Task Force.  The email address is 

    ideas.nrtaskforce@gmail.com  

    Each e-mail received will be provided to one of four working groups: district policies and practices, New Rochelle High School policies and practices, City of New Rochelle policies and practices, and community-based resources.  

     Some members of the community might like the opportunity to provide public comment and the Task Force has established our meeting on Saturday April 14, 2018 as a meeting where public comments about recommendations can be shared.  Details about the schedule for this meeting will be provided in future updates.

    Thank you for the commitment this community has shown to working together to reduce violence in the lives of children and youth.

  • Anti-Bullying App Now Available

    The Anonymous Alerts app for reporting bullying and other potential troubles is now available. Once it is installed, access the system with login: newrochelleps and password: newrochelleps. The following is a press release the District sent announcing the app:

     

    Anti-Bullying App Available for New Rochelle School District

    NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (March 7, 2018) Students, parents and others can now report bullying and other troubles that may impact students in City School District of New Rochelle from their cell phones and tablets with the app that is available from Anonymous Alerts.

    The app is an extension of the agreement the School District reached recently with Anonymous Alerts®, a patented, anonymous two-way communications® system that empowers students to anonymously report bullying and harassment, weapons, drug/alcohol usage and other safety concerns directly to school officials.

    Since its introduction earlier this year, the system has students and others to report problems through the website www.anonymousalerts.com/newrochelleps. The newly activated app puts the ability to report issues in the palm of a student’s hand.

    Students and others can download the app in the Apple App Store, Google Play store or the Chrome store. To gain access to the School District’s reporting system, enter login: newrochelleps and password: newrochelleps.

    “Now anyone can download the app directly on smart phones or tablets and have access to it at any time,” said Superintendent Dr. Brian Osborne. “We hope that by providing this tool, we will enable students who might not be willing to go to an adult to still report bullying or other tensions that need to be addressed in order to keep students safe.”

    Messages will be monitored during regular school business hours by administrators at every school as well as at the District office. The District stresses that the system is not meant to report emergencies. Situations that need immediate attention should be reported to 9-1-1, as always.

    The new technology at students’ fingertips will help them to anonymously discuss sensitive topics, have compassion for others, and learn self-awareness about issues confronting today’s youth. Administrators will get an app of their own called the Anonymous Alerts Incident Management app to anonymously respond to students, track incidents and take notes.

    About Anonymous Alerts®

    The Anonymous Alerts® award-winning mobile applications were developed to encourage students to quickly report bullying and other safety concerns on school and college campuses. Bullying, cyberbullying, drug use/dealing, depression, safety threats, and more can all be reported directly to authorized personnel through easy-to-use mobile apps and a hosted website. The mobile apps and systems are completely customizable for each client. Anonymous Alerts® is Patented (U.S. Patent No. 9,071,579) with additional patents pending.
