From the Desk of Milton Public Schools Superintendent Mary Gormley:
I am pleased to announce that I have recently opened a Twitter account. My Twitter “handle” is @SuptMPS and I am looking forward to sending out brief updates via Twitter on a regular basis. I would encourage Milton Public Schools parents and guardians to open a free Twitter account in order to receive these updates. The beauty of this form of communication is that it is ideal for short (140 characters or less) updates called “tweets.” These updates can be received on desktop computers or mobile devices. As we develop this form of communication, I envision using Twitter to alert parents/guardians about transportation issues, upcoming events and late-breaking news or alerts from Central Office. Visit www.twitter.com for more information about signing up.
SCHOOL COMMITTEE UPDATE
There has been one School Committee meeting since my last E-blast. This meeting is summarized below.
October 21st: As part of Citizen’s Speak, the School Committee was treated to a performance by members of the cast of the upcoming MHS musical, “42nd Street.” This was followed by a review of this year’s MASC Resolutions, in advance of their annual conference. The School Committee goals were reviewed, along with a point person/committee assigned to each goal and a brief summary of the budget process was given by Assistant Superintendent for Business, Dr. Glenn Pavlicek. The School Committee voted to approve the final FY16 budget reductions and the most recent vendor warrant. They also re-approved the district’s Diversity Policy and received an update from the Transportation and Traffic Safety Subcommittee before adjourning to executive session. The next meeting will be held November 4th at 7 pm in the Milton High School library.
