Office Of The Superintendent

  • Dear Greenburgh Central Community, Staff, Parents and Students:

    This is my first day as Superintendent of Schools for the Greenburgh School District. I am excited to finally be here!

    I want to thank the Board of Education Trustees, administrators and all district staff for your very warm welcome and support during my transition. Your kind gestures were deeply appreciated.

    I spent most of the day meeting with senior staff planning for next year. The Greenburgh Central School District will be welcoming back all of our students for full in-person, five days a week instruction during the 2021-2022 school year. The district is also prepared for remote/distance learning as well as a hybrid model that combines in person instruction and remote learning. 

    As we move into planning for the year, on June 7, 2021, school districts received guidance from the New York State Department of Health, the New York State Education Department, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Using these guidance documents, the District Reopen Plan has been updated to comply with these strict health and safety protocols. The document has been placed on the website.

    We have received inquiries about whether students and staff will be required to wear masks. Aside from reduced social distancing to 3ft, where feasible, the guidance documents stipulate that all other safety procedures and protocols presently remain in place. Students and staff are still required to wear masks indoors and on buses. Detailed cleaning and disinfection will continue. Masks will no longer be required outdoors on school grounds, during physical activity and during meals.

    The health and safety of our staff and students and their families remain our top priority. We will continue to provide you with updates as they become available. 

    Thank you very much.  Continue to enjoy your summer and stay safe!

    Sincerely,

    Linda J. Iverson, Ph.D.
    Superintendent of Schools

     


     

    Estimados Estudiantes, Personal, Padres y Comunidad de Greenburgh Central:

    Este es mi primer día como Superintendente de Escuelas del Distrito Escolar de Greenburgh. ¡Estoy emocionado de estar finalmente aquí!

    Quiero agradecer a los Fideicomisarios de la Junta de Educación, administradores y todo el personal del distrito por su cálida bienvenida y apoyo durante mi transición. Sus amables gestos fueron profundamente apreciados.

    Pasé la mayor parte del día reuniéndome con el personal superior para planificar el próximo año. El Distrito Escolar Central de Greenburgh dará la bienvenida a todos nuestros estudiantes para una instrucción completa en persona, cinco días a la semana durante el año escolar 2021-2022. El distrito también está preparado para el aprendizaje remoto / a distancia, así como un modelo híbrido que combina la instrucción en persona y el aprendizaje remoto.

    A medida que avanzamos en la planificación para el año, el 7 de Junio de 2021, los distritos escolares recibieron orientación del Departamento de Salud del Estado de Nueva York, el Departamento de Educación del Estado de Nueva York, los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades. Usando estos documentos de orientación, el Plan de Reapertura del Distrito se ha actualizado para cumplir con estos estrictos protocolos de salud y seguridad. El documento se ha colocado en el sitio web.

    Hemos recibido preguntas sobre si se requerirá que los estudiantes y el personal usen mascarillas. Aparte de la reducción del distanciamiento social a 3 pies, cuando sea posible, los documentos de orientación estipulan que todos los demás procedimientos y protocolos de seguridad permanecen vigentes en la actualidad. Aún se requiere que los estudiantes y el personal usen mascarillas en el interior y en los autobuses. Continuará la limpieza y desinfección detalladas. Ya no se requerirán mascarillas al aire libre en los terrenos de la escuela, durante la actividad física y durante las comidas.

    La salud y seguridad de nuestro personal, estudiantes y sus familias siguen siendo nuestra principal prioridad. Continuaremos proporcionándole actualizaciones a medida que estén disponibles.

    Muchas gracias. ¡Continúe disfrutando de su verano y manténgase seguro!

    Sinceramente, 

    Linda J. Iverson, Ph.D.
    Superintendente de Escuelas​​​​​​​

    Dear Greenburgh Central Community:

    I am humbled to have this new opportunity to work with the Board of Education, faculty, staff, parents, students and community stakeholders and continually improve the quality of education for all the students in the Greenburgh Central School District as the Superintendent of Schools. I look forward to joining a team of professionals and expect to learn as much as I will contribute.

    As Superintendent, prioritizing student achievement and effective instructional practices will be one of my foremost goals, using as a barometer in all decisions “Is it good for all students, teaching and learning.” To accomplish this, I know that effective leadership, as a superintendent is a shared leadership in which there are high levels of collaboration and communication among all investors to help define and commit to a common vision that ensures that every child receives the requisite skills for the 21st century.

    I have submitted an Entry Plan to the Board of Education that details the activities that I will engage in my transition to the District during the First 100 Days. In collaboration with the Board of Education and senior staff, it is my intent to schedule time to become acquainted with each stakeholder group to Listen and Learn of the excellent work that has gone before, what are the strengths, what areas need to improve and what are the recommendations for the District. The information gathered from this experience will inform the work for the future and support a renewed clear and shared vision that will serve as the springboard for a new District Strategic Plan.

    I believe long-term improvements in public education are only sustainable when the work is done collaboratively with all stakeholders having a voice. We are all responsible for the success of our schools and all of us must work together as one team to build real lasting change.

    Thank you very much and see you soon!

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Linda J. Iverson
