Summer 2022 Message. Uplift Each Other in Community.
Dear Families and Staff,
Summer is upon us and in Nyack Public Schools we are busy with all the activities it brings: summer enrichment programs, facilities-based projects and building level preparations for the new school year. Our district office, administrators and summer staff remain bustling with a different energy of the new season, transitioning into new leadership and ready for change as our Board of Education explores next steps in hiring a new Superintendent of Schools.
We want our school community to be assured that we are working together as a team to uplift each other, sustain District operations and stabilize the Nyack-Strong spirit that continues to anchor us in times of change.
We are happy to introduce Lizzette Ruiz-Giovinazzi, our new Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction. Ms. Ruiz-Giovinazzi comes to us with twenty seven years of experience, expertise in Educational Leadership, Administration and Policy, and laser focus on culturally responsive pedagogy and community-building practices. We also want to introduce Dr. Grace Chan, our new Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations, and Dr. Pedro Roman, our new Chief Executive of Human Resources and Grants Management. Each of these new administrators, along with Interim Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Montesano, will be integral to the success of our team moving forward.
The District team’s immediate priorities are to work in alignment with the Board of Education during the new superintendent search and to build-up existing district infrastructures and leadership as we maintain the safety, well-being and excellence of our students and staff.
We welcome the challenges of the immediate changes in front of us, believing that with change comes opportunity. We invite you to continue with us on our district’s journey towards cultural and organizational transformation. We promise to keep you informed throughout the summer weeks with highlights and updates via our social media platforms, school-based and district communications. You can expect to receive our printed 2022-23 District Calendar in August.
