Staff gathers for superintendent’s conference day

Teachers, administrators and board of education members of the District gathered for a two-day conference prior to the start of the 2014-15 school year.

The first day featured motivational speeches by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham and Board of Education President Michael Pomerico, who thanked all of the different departments within the school district for their hard work and commitment to excellence. The program began with a montage of photos highlighting staff members from the district’s eight schools and also included short video clips.

“The district’s recent successes, including the Class of 2014 achieving the district’s highest graduation rate, would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of our teachers,” said Dr. Kuncham. “While challenges will arise in the coming school year, I am positive that our district will continue to excel and improve year after year.”

During the professional development workshops on the second day, teachers gathered with their respective departments and reviewed the Common Core Learning Standards, curriculum and instructional tools, and keys for success.
