    In-Person Input Session:  The Academy for Urban Leadership Board of Trustees invites all interested parents, families, and community members to an in-person input session with our Search Consultant, Kathleen Helewa at 10 am on Saturday, February 24, 2024, in the main auditorium at our main campus, 612 Amboy Avenue.   Ms. Helewa will discuss the steps in the Lead Person Search process and field input from participants regarding what would make an ideal new Lead Person for AULCS.  This is not a Board of Trustees meeting and Trustees will not be present. All outcomes will be presented to the Trustees to assist in identifying the most qualified candidates for the position.  There is no pre-registration for this event.   Spanish translation services will be available. We sincerely hope you can attend!  

    Online Input Surveys:  We have made a new, five-question multiple choice online survey available for AULCS families and school community members, so you can more conveniently express to the Board of Trustees what your priorities are for our next Lead Person.   Find the links here:

    All surveys will close at 11:59 pm on Saturday, February 24.  Thank you for your input!
