“Getting to the systemic level of change and the investment back into our teachers and staff and our buildings, that’s kind of our next wave of really advancing the Ann Arbor Public Schools to get us to the level that I think our community expects and hopefully beyond,” says Board of Education President Christine Stead of her goals for the upcoming years.

“The presence of guns in schools runs contrary to everything we are wired for in education, and is counterproductive to maintaining a rich, productive and healthy learning environment for our children. We are pleased that the court has ruled in favor of our position that puts the safety of children first,” says Superintendent Jeanice Swift.

”When you all started it was the first time that I saw meaningful change for some of our at risk kids at the level they needed, at the personal level, with their issues, and their understanding of what’s going on in their lives,” says Ann Arbor Public Schools Trustee Christine Stead.

“I am grateful to all the employee group leaders, Deputy Superintendent Comsa, and the members of the negotiating teams who invested their time during this negotiation process to achieve this positive outcome,” says Superintendent Jeanice Swift.
