Connecting District and Community

Community members and district parents were recently invited to “Coffee with the Superintendent” at the Elementary School library. The new program, launched by Superintendent Linda Rozzi, is designed to more closely connect the school district with its parents and community members.

Residents had the opportunity to meet with Ms. Rozzi in a casual atmosphere and conduct open conversations on district happenings as well as address any questions or concerns.

Ms. Rozzi has been working with the Board of Education, administrators and members of the teaching staff to craft seven priorities for the district.

During the event, she gave attendees a brief overall of the goals, which include instruction and learning; school safety and security; fiscal responsibility; technological advancements; professional development; community relations and communication; and facilities. An in-depth discussion of the goals will be presented during the district’s Oct. 19 Board of Education meeting. 

“I think we had a nice turnout for the first event and this type of environment helps to open up the dialogue between the district and its adult partners,” Ms. Rozzi said.

The next “Coffee with the Superintendent” will be held on Nov. 12 at Babylon Junior-Senior High School beginning at 7 p.m.
