    Resolution Honoring National Black History Month

    By the Receiver, Acting as the Board of School Directors

    February 2023

    Whereas, since 1926, our nation traditionally commemorates and celebrates the contributions of African Americans during February; and

    Whereas, since our nation’s Bicentennial in 1976, each president has issued proclamations declaring February as Black History Month; and

    Whereas, “Black Resistance: Building Bridges and Navigating Barriers” is this year’s national theme and looks at how African Americans have fought repression from American’s earliest days; and,

    Whereas, African Americans have contributed significantly to the economic, cultural, spiritual, and political development of the country, as well as to that in the Duquesne City School District; and,

    Whereas, students of African American heritage are a significant population of the Duquesne City School District; and,

    Whereas, African American principals, assistance principals and other educators, paraprofessionals, personal care assistants, secretaries, and custodians serve with dedication, commitment, and distinction; and,

    Whereas, School Board Directors of African American heritage serve with dedication, commitment, and distinction; and,

    Whereas, incorporating an accurate portrayal of African American history into the curriculum and teaching the contributions of African American history culture, society, and language in the classroom promotes academic success for African American students, increases the understanding of all students, and benefits all citizens.

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Duquesne City School District Board of School Directors proclaims February 2023 Black History Month and encourages students and staff to honor it during February and throughout the school year with interactive research, classroom lesson plans, guest speakers, displays, lectures, practical activities, and cultural celebrations.

    HEREBY proclaimed this 1st day of February, 2023
