Premye jou lekòl la MaryEllen Elia, Komisè Depatman Edikasyon Eta Nouyòk, ak mwen te salye elèv yo lè yo t ap antre nan Lekòl Elemantè Kakiyat (Kakiat Elementary School). Sa te fè nou anpil plezi lè nou te wè tout kè kontan ki te make nan figi timoun yo pandan yo t ap antre anndan lekòl la tou pare pou yo kòmanse nouvo ane akademik lan.
Konsa tou Mèkredi 7 Septanm se te premye opòtinite nou te genyen pou nou te esplike piblik la wòl Monitè Eta Nouyòk pou Distri Eskolè Santral Ès Ramapo a (East Ramapo Central School District). Anplis se te yon opòtinite pou Sipèentandan Deborah Wortham pou li dekri Plan Akademik Estratejik pou lontèm distri a ak plan ki genyen pou $3 milyon Lejislati a ak Gouvènè a bay la. Mwen di tout paran ak manm kominote a ki te vin koute plan an e ki te bay komantè pa yo sou li mèsi.
Mwen te apresye sa anpil lè m te tande jan kesyon estanda wo nivo, kesyon diplome nan inivèsite ak kesyon prepare elèv pou karyè gen gwo sipò bò kote kominote a. Nouvo eslogan distri a “Anwo nèt” di tout bagay. Li te ankourajan tou pou m te tande kalite sipò kesyon sèvi ak $3 milyon an pou retounen ak klas jadendanfan aplentan ak pwogram travay atistik. Malgre sipò sa a, mwen te tande tou jan paran t ap mande ak anpil pasyon pou yo louvri pwogram Jadendanfan aplentan an koulye a. Komisè a ak mwen pran angajman pou nou konplete evalyasyon selon Chapit 89 nan Lwa 2016 la prese prese e nou vle asire tout paran yo ap gen Jadendanfan aplentan pou tout elèv yo avan fen mwa a, si se pa pi bonè.
Koulye a gwo travay pou mete plan an ann aplikasyon kòmanse, nou kontan nou pral travay ak Distri a, konsèy eskolè a ak kominote a pou nou fè sa.

Read the letter from Commissioner Elia thanking East Ramapo monitors Dennis Walcott, Monica George-Fields, & John Sipple for their service.
Commissioner Elia issued the following statement following the appointment of Deborah Wortham as interim Superintendent of the East Ramapo Central School District:
“[T]he East Ramapo School District has taken a major step forward. Dr. Deborah L. Wortham brings the right kind of experience and leadership the district needs. Dennis Walcott and the East Ramapo Monitoring Team have been working tirelessly to effect change and improvement in the district, and helping bring Dr. Wortham on board is evidence of the remarkable work the team has done so far.
“Dr. Wortham will be a strong voice for all the district’s students. I look forward to working with her, Senator Carlucci, Assemblymembers Jaffee and Zebrowski, the monitors and the East Ramapo school board to restore stability in the district and ensure that all East Ramapo students have the educational opportunities they need and deserve.”
Within the last few weeks, Lead Monitor Dennis Walcott had the opportunity to attend Hispanic Heritage Night and meet with the Rockland Clergy for Social Justice (RC4SJ).
The RC4SJ meeting was attended by over 20 religious leaders from various denominations and the meeting was productive. Dennis heard about several pressing issues important to the Clergy, focusing on several issues highlighting the urgency to find solutions for the students of East Ramapo.
The Monitors have several meetings coming up, including with Get Up, Stand Up: East Ramapo and with the Rockland County School Boards.
