We are deeply saddened by the recent news of the death of Madeleine Brennan. It is with profound regret that we share this with you. As you probably know, Madeleine was an active member, an officer and our President. She helped so many of us in so many ways. A detailed article of tribute will be posted shortly. We know that you will keep Mrs. Brennan in your thoughts and prayers.
New York Academy of Public Education
The New York Academy of Public Education was established in 1912. At that time, the leaders of this professional honorary organization focused its primary efforts on the advancement and progress of urban education. The Academy successfully provided a common forum and meeting ground in fostering educational activities between the professional community and the public-at-large. One hundred years later our primary efforts remain the same.

Global Kids, the organization where NYAPE member Dr. Elizabeth Bishop works, received a $100,000 award from the NYC Complete Count Fund — a partnership between CUNY, Mayor de Blasio and the New York City Council. The Complete Count Fund is a community organizing program supporting organizations to help NYC in the 2020 Census. Dynamic, diverse, and informed youths will form Census Squads at their schools. After intensive training, they will educate peers, parents, faculty and community members in and near their schools around the importance of the census and self-response.
