THE SLT IS INTERVIEWING PRINCIPAL CANDIDATES
Your School Leaderships Team (SLT) will be interviewing Superintendent Skop’s top three candidates for our PS 154 Principal position in early January. Do you have thoughts you’d like to share? Please reach out to the SLT Parents with your point of view. We read all messages! We’d love to hear your point of view about PS 154 and our future. SLT_Info@ps154.org
Learn more about your School Leadership Team, and read recent meeting minutes, at ps154.org/school-leadership-team-slt.
ATTENTION: FAMILIES OF CHILDREN WITH INDIVIDUAL EDUCATION PLANS (IEPs)
Your teacher has given you a letter from Principal Buckley with a link to a very important survey. It is very important that every student with an IEP has a parent fill out this survey. This anonymous, internal survey, for which only Mr. Buckley will have the complete results, is designed to help PS 154 become better aware of parent and family experiences for those families with children with IEPs. If you need the link to the survey, it is below. Please fill out one survey for every child in your family who has an IEP.
