*In every community, the youth’s voice has been limited and no change can be made. The Dearborn Youth Affairs Commission is an opportunity to make yourself heard. The DYAC was created by Mayor Jack O’Reilly and the vision for this group was to seek change in the community and ensure that people’s voices are heard and changes were made for the better. Only select leaders from the community are chosen to be part of the DYAC. From attending Town Hall meetings to hosting the city-wide event: Dearborn’s Got Talent for all talent to be shown, we look to honor our ways, by making it all about the people. Our city is in a crisis where our youth has decreased in involvement on political action and community engagement. Most of our commitment has now been from the older generations. However, now it is time for that demographic to change. The younger generation has been given a chance to answer the call to act and make a difference. So, are you up to making a difference in your community? Apply by November 15th at 11:59pm.                          ( https://forms.gle/8FzWG9fVMVkcRoJy6 ) {run thru 11/15}

A Letter From the Principal (UPDATE)

Dear Edsel Ford Community,

I would like to provide a brief update regarding the incident involving comments made on social media discovered on Tuesday evening.  

Our administrative team worked in partnership with the Dearborn Police to identify the individual responsible for posting the comments. As we originally determined the comments were not a credible threat to the school rather were made as a joke and shared with specific people.

Although the intentions of the individual may not have been done with malice, the messages sent were threatening in nature creating a situation that was disruptive and incited fear in our community. For these reasons swift and appropriate disciplinary action has been taken both from the District and police.   

Once again, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Dearborn Police for all their efforts to quickly investigate and resolve this situation. Our School Resource Officer (SRO) and our administrative team did an outstanding job of working together to ensure our school was safe and bring closure to this incident. I also want to thank the students who reported this information to our staff and assisted in our investigation efforts. These students demonstrated civic responsibility and the important role it plays in keeping our community safe.  

School staff, parents, and community members are frustrated and concerned by this ongoing problem with young people making critical errors in judgment and inappropriately using social media.  The repercussions for making these types of comments can be life changing and have ramifications for years to come. Please use this incident as an opportunity to talk to your child about the proper way to use social media, e-mail, and texting.  

Working together, our efforts will ensure that Edsel Ford High School remains a great place for every child to attend and learn. Sincerely,

Scott Casebolt,
Principal
Edsel Ford High School

A Letter From the Principal

March 6, 2019   

Dear Edsel Ford Community,

On Tuesday evening Edsel Ford administration was informed about a post on social media threatening the safety of the school on Wednesday morning.  We immediately contacted Dearborn Police to assist us in investigating the source of this message.

It has been determined that the posting was not a credible threat and the police as well as school administration are confident there is no danger to the school. Because this rumor was being spread over several different social media platforms, as a precautionary measure, additional Dearborn Police will be at the school on Wednesday, March 6, 2019.

Once again we have experienced the negative impact that spreading rumors or making threats on social media can have on the entire community. I do want to thank the students who reported this information to our staff and assisted in our investigation efforts. I would also like to thank the entire Dearborn Police, Chief Haddad, and the Edsel staff for coming together to resolve this issue and ensure the safety of Edsel Ford High School.  

We know our students are safe at home and we pride ourselves on creating a safe environment for your children when they are here at school.  By working together we can ensure that our school will always be a safe place for learning.

Sincerely,

Scott Casebolt,

Principal

Edsel Ford High School.
