“The climate on campus has changed for the better. The difference is huge,” said Andreea Singh, whose daughter attends 8th grade at Monroe Middle School.  “I’ve seen a lot of positive changes and other parents I talk to say the same thing. My 8th grade daughter tells me that it’s happier at Monroe, there’s more stuff to do, kids aren’t having as many conflicts.

Singh was one of about a dozen people—parents and staff—who attended a follow-up meeting on Dec. 10 to report to the community the progress being made to improve campus climate and safety. 

“In the seven weeks since our last community meeting, we’ve made changes that are showing positive results,” said Monroe Middle School Principal Eric Brown. He and assistant principals Cathy McAvoy and Veronica Flores presented a lengthy list of actions that correlate to suggestions received at the October meeting.

The suggestions were divided into four themes: Communication/Social Media; Community Partnerships; Systems/Training; Bullying. (View the presentation online.)

Examples of those actions include community partners providing organized activities at recess, increased campus supervision as more adults are on campus, split lunch periods and 6th graders having a separate area from upper grades, the formation of a Principal’s Student Advisory Committee, and more.

“As I tell my daughter, things don’t change overnight,” Singh said. “But I’m really happy with the changes that Eric and the administration have put in place and I have confidence that they will continue this forward progress.”
