(Editor’s note: The opportunity to submit a regular ‘From the Desk’ column in the Levittown Tribune was offered to both districts’ superintendents.)
Since I no longer have children in the school district, it’s hard to keep up with issues I once had instant access to. On a fairly immediate basis, I no longer hear how the school is doing in any of its sports programs, any of its educational challenges, any of its personnel changes, any of its adult programs or generally how things are going in the halls. In subscribing to the Levittown Tribune I have noticed that Island Trees has a column wherein the superintendent addresses problems, initiatives, successes, etc. that his constituency may want to hear about - but not so with the Levittown district. Yes, I actually do read a newspaper (not Newsday), go online, check the district’s website, etc. but I’d like to have more information available in closer-to-real time than that currently allowed by a monthly newsletter. Is there any possibility, Dr. Sirois, that our school district will employ this fairly easy way of keeping me in the loop?
