Last Thursday, Dr. Eric Jay Rosser, superintendent of schools, had the opportunity to host the first of four quarterly Superintendent Student Advisory Committee Meetings with Poughkeepsie High School students. The advisory committee exists to help inform the superintendent’s thinking around the K-12 school experiences of PCSD students. “I’m interested in hearing directly from our students what their experiences have been thus far, and what the system can do to expand opportunities to enhance their experiences.” Rosser said. “My goal is to enhance opportunities for all PCSD students by providing them with memorable opportunities that I was exposed to when I was in high school plus those that will guarantee their success in the 21st century”.
The conversation yielded a lot of good ideas that district and building administration will be exploring and implementing. It also reinforced some great things that the district is doing for students. Dr. Rosser was joined by PHS principal Kelleyann Royce-Giron, Interim Executive Director of School Engagement Felicia Schinella and Director of Special Projects Kristina Giangreco.
