The district recently welcomed 25 new staff members for the 2016-17 school year. The new members gathered on August 29 for a special orientation to familiarize themselves with the district’s administrators, buildings and policies. In his welcome address to the new staff, Superintendent of Schools John DeTommaso said, “By putting kids first and always, results will always follow.”

Throughout the day, the new staff members heard from a variety of district administrators on topics ranging from effective communication to leveraging the increased technological capabilities available for instruction such as the Bring Your Own Device initiative and SMART Boards. On August 30, staff continued their orientation at their respective buildings, during which they met with their principals, department supervisors and their mentors or “buddy teachers” to review instructional topics.

The district welcomes all staff members back for the start of the new year and wishes them a successful school year ahead!
