As part of Black History Month, schools are celebrating the contributions of African-Americans in U.S. history. CCSD schools are doing a variety of activities ranging from studying prominent African-Americans to having events that include song, dance and poetry virtually.

This beautiful collage recognizes some of our school namesakes at CCSD that have contributed to education.

Watch Superintendent Jesus F. Jara’s video, recognizing African-American leaders like Hannah Brown, Helen Anderson Toland and the late Tyrone Thompson who have impacted the lives of CCSD students.
