An Evening with Ambassador Andrew Young - During our time together, Ambassador Young shared his thoughts on several issues related to school improvement, parent engagement, and a new vision for student success - all while sharing personal experiences that highlighted his extraordinary career as an honored statesman and respected public servant.

The conversation was indeed lively and informative.  While there were several
special invited guests, such as FCS Superintendent Jeff Rose,  it was extremely delightful to see the hundreds of Banneker High School parents, students, and staff who took time out to enjoy this momentous occasion.  An "Evening With Ambassador Andrew Young at Banneker High School" - Recorded Wednesday, November 9, 2016.​

A word from the principal....

Dear Banneker High School Families,

Last week, citizens from every quarter of the state of Georgia sent a strong message – indicating that state intervention in our public schools was broadly unwanted.  Many of you are aware that Governor Nathan Deal and his newly formed Office of Student Achievement produced a list consisting of 127 schools that were eligible for state takeover based on 3 consecutive years of performance data.  Banneker was included among that number.  Under the Governor’s plan, schools that were eligible to be taken over would have become a part of the what was widely know as the Opportunity School District, or, “OSD” for short.  Now that the OSD has been defeated, the question is, “what do we do now?” 

I’d kindly submit to you that we must now take this opportunity to do what we have always done – work together to build the kind of schools and communities that we want for our children.  Last week, Ambassador Andrew Young visited Banneker and precisely echoed many of these sentiments.  They came on the heels of Banneker holding its largest PTA meeting in years, where nearly 100 parents came to show their interest and support for our beloved school.

This means that to avoid the prospect of any outside group, agency, or organization taking over ANY of our schools, we must activate the spirit, energy, expertise, and involvement of our parents.  Never before have we needed your support more than we do now with academics, discipline, public advocacy, and spreading the good word about Banneker High School.  Parents, we’re counting on you!

Take good care,

Dr. Bradley
