SLT (Student Leadership Team) Meeting Dates - The School Leadership Team (SLT) provides a structure for school-based decision making and the development of a collaborative school culture. The SLT members develop educational policies for their school and align resources to those policies. SLTs provide ongoing evaluations and assessments of a school’s educational programs and their effect on student achievement. Members who are currently on the SLT are on for this school year.
EAGLE ACADEMY FOR YOUNG MEN STAND AGAINST BULLYING:
Eagle Academy along with the New York City Department of Education is committed to maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from harassment, intimidation and/or bullying and from discrimination based on actual or perceived race, color, citizenship/immigration status, religion, creed, national origin, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, or weight.
Did You Know?
Chronic absenteeism means missing 10% or more of school days in a year. 5 to 7.5 million students are chronically absent each year. Students who are chronically absent are less likely to succeed academically and more likely to drop out of school. Attending school every day increases a child’s chances of success in school and in life.

MEN'S CORNER 2017 - 2018
posted Sep 22, 2014, 10:31 AM by Denise R. Browne [ updated Aug 2, 2016, 9:56 AM ]
Our youths need positive family role models to help successfully navigate the transition into adolescence and early adulthood. When men play these active roles alongside mothers, children tend to be more confident, earn better grades, and exhibit healthier behavior. We encourage all men - fathers, grandfathers, uncles, older brothers, mentors to get involved in all school activities.
Attention All Men! Please mark your calendar! Tuesday, September 19, 2017- 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. - Dads Take Your Child to School Day is a national event all schools are encouraged to plan for their school. Positive male involvement is associated with improvements in children's academic performance, cognitive development, behavior, health and well-being, general/overall parenting quality, etc. Invited to attend: Dads, Grandfathers, Older Brothers (over 21), Uncles, Mentors, etc. The event is for the men in our community.
