CLEVELAND TEACHERS UNION TO LAUNCH AWARENESS CAMPAIGN ABOUT GANGS

 CLEVELAND TEACHERS UNION TO LAUNCH
 AWARENESS CAMPAIGN ABOUT GANGS
 The Cleveland Teachers Union (CTU) is initiating a multi-faceted campaign of awareness and community education about the evils of gangs. Gangs Campaign goals are:
 -- Helping parents detect early signs of children's interest in or involvement with gangs.
 -- Advising parents of ways to remove a child from a gang's influence.
 -- Providing social and community resources to parents experiencing difficulities with their school-aged children.
 "The gang problem in Cleveland is small compared with some other major cities, but it's a growing detriment to both education and good parent-child interaction," said Richard A. DeColibus, CTU president. "With this campaign, we hope to help meet this problem head on and prevent any further escalation of gangs activity and gang violence."
 The Gangs Campaign will accomplish its objectives through four community meetings at Cleveland Schools, and through a flier inserted into students' March 30 interim report cards. The community meetings will be held in the evening at four Cleveland Public Schools. Speakers will be experts on gangs and gang activities, including a representative from Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court and from the Cleveland Public Schools' Youth Gang Unit. All meetings will start at 6:30 p.m.; community meeting dates and locations are:
 Site Address Date
 Collinwood High 15210 St. Clair Ave. March 23
 John Adams High 3817 MLK Jr. Drive March 25
 Lincoln-West High 3202 W. 30th St. March 30
 John Marshall High 3952 W. 140th St. April 1
 In addition to the community meetings, the report card flier will contain information advising parents about gang problems and signs of gang activity, and how gangs affect their children. The flier will also have a list of social service agencies parents can contact for assistance in dealing with the influence of gangs on their children.
