The district’s newest teachers were welcomed to school by Board of Education members and administrators during a full day orientation on August 25, 2014.  They also met with their building principals and learned specifics of their individual jobs. These faculty members were hired to replace retirees, teachers on leave and to fill other vacancies.

Tours of the schools, important human resource information and an overview of the district’s policies and culture were part of the day. Board of Education Vice President Erika Bruno told the new teachers that they were obviously among the best in their fields as the hiring process was extremely vigilant.

Students will meet the newest members of the faculty on the first day of school, September 2, 2014. We know you will make them feel at home!
