|Dear Drew Community, |
This afternoon, Drew’s Senior Academy held a virtual Rising 9th Grade Parent meeting on our Zoom platform. Unfortunately, during this meeting there were several racial outbursts, including use of the “N” word, from unidentified participants, which disrupted the meeting and required us to abruptly end it. Drew is working with our technology team to determine the identities of the perpetrators in the meeting. We are sharing this information with you as it impacts our entire Drew community. Drew administrators and staff are totally devastated by what occurred during this meeting. This is the third time in two weeks that I have had to write to you about racism and its impact on our immediate community and the larger world. As I have said before, Drew Charter School will not tolerate racism of any kind, and we will continue to weed it out as it presents itself. As infuriating and disheartening as this is, nothing will shake our unwavering commitment to and affirmation of Drew’s black students, staff, and families.

STAND WITH US, KNEEL WITH US – Friday, June 5th, at 5:30PM
June 3, 2020
Good evening Drew Community,
It has come to my attention that a Senior Academy student posted an offensive, inappropriate and discriminatory post on social media. First, I want to say that I am deeply saddened and disappointed. I appreciate every student and parent that has brought awareness to this issue and as such, we have already begun the follow-up with the family. I want to reassure this community that we have high expectations for our parents, staff, and our students. There should be a clear understanding that this is not a community that will stand by and condone discrimination, racism, systematic oppression, and/or institutional racism. It is our responsibility to hold every member of our community accountable and respond immediately and appropriately.
I express this in all transparency but want to be clear that due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) the school cannot share with anyone the details, specifics, consequences of an incident with anyone other than the offending party in any situation.
While some of these incidents may be met with restorative practices, education, and corrective requirements or policies, it is important to understand that certain actions will not be tolerated. Drew administrators and staff will take all appropriate steps to eradicate actions that threaten the safety and security of the people in our community.
Please reach out to me with any concerns or further questions.

Spring Break: April 6-12
E-Learning will resume on April 13th,2020
Shoutout to Senior Academy students for all of the comments, posts, smiles, and stories they shared on social media last week! Thank you for the amazing memories; I am very thankful for our time together virtually, it was a week full of fun.
As we go into Spring Break, I encourage everyone to use this time to rest and relax. Please use this time to indulge in your favorite hobby or to simply rest, and put your computer to the side!
You deserve this time – enjoy it. Have a great break!
Dear Drew Parents/Guardians:
Governor Brian Kemp announced today that all K-12 schools in Georgia will remain closed for in-person instruction for the remainder of this school year. In keeping with this order, Drew Charter School will remain closed for the remainder of this school year and will continue implementing e-learning Days for the duration of the closure.
As this closure was just announced, we will work on the specific impact of this decision as it relates to considering alternatives to celebrate our Drew 2020 graduates and to address the loss of comprehensive instructional learning time for the school year. Once we have had the opportunity to consider all aspects of this closure extension, we will follow up with families and staff to communicate more details.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these developments. In the meantime, please do all you can to take care of yourself, your family and your loved ones. We will be back in touch soon.
Head of School
