As our scholars, staff, and families enjoy the holiday season and winter break, we want to express our gratitude for everyone who is working together to build magical schools for our kids. You’ve created a community that wants for all children what we would want for our own; in fact, there are almost 60 of you who are so committed to our schools that you are both employees and Success Academy parents!
In an article published on Friday, November 9, the New York Times claimed that I have damaged the charter school movement by “praising” President Trump and allowing Speaker Paul Ryan to visit one of our schools.

In the past few weeks, Success Academy parents have shown amazing support and appreciation for our schools, as they have defended us publicly in the press and privately to friends and staff.
By standing together with families from across the city, we will send a powerful message to our city leaders: The profound and appalling education inequality that divides our city must end.
A school, like a rocket, is a delicate mechanism. So many things can go wrong when teaching children, just as when building and launching a rocket.
I am especially pleased to recognize the 24 winners of this year’s Success Academy Teacher Excellence Awards for their outstanding work and deep commitment to the highest standards of excellence.
Last December, your office promised in writing to approve co-locations for four Success Academy schools by June 30 of this year. The deadline for filing the paperwork necessary to meet that deadline has passed, and only one co-location has been found.
