SCA Community Education Committee hosts "Listening Tour" with Superintendent Charlie Cardillo
We hope you can participate in interactive discussion with Mr. Cardillo about the state of our schools and their future. The event includes a carousel activity where small groups rotate through short questions, brainstorming responses and offering opinions and insights. The exercise then shifts to priorities and concludes with a review of the responses. The entire activity should run no more than 1 ½ hours. This is an opportunity for you to voice your opinion on the state-of-the-state of our schools and their future direction and assist as Mr. Cardillo gathers information to use as a blueprint for moving forward.
If you are available to participate on any of the following dates/times, please contact Mimi Donohue at firstname.lastname@example.org:

About the CEC
The 2012-2013 school year ended with a flurry of “get-out-the-vote” activity to ensure a strong turnout for the school budget and we thank all those who rolled up their sleeves and committed time, talent and energy to the cause. There are too many to name, but you know who you are and we are very appreciative of all your hard work.
In years past, the CEC has limited its activities to raising awareness about the annual school budget and ensuring all eligible residents get to the polls in May.
This year, however, the CEC will expand its charter to include planning and arranging discussion groups, community forums, and guest speakers as well as writing relevant newspaper articles with the goal of raising community awareness and providing clarity on issues surrounding the Manhasset Public School District.
Broadly, our goals will include:
- Promoting community input and providing constructive avenues for residents to offer feedback.
- Working closely with other governmental agencies and bodies to address local concerns and issues.
- Collaborating with other school committees and community organizations to strengthen partnerships between staff, student, parents and residents to support teaching and learning.
The ultimate objective is engagement and interactivity,and we hope you will join The Community Education Committee. If you wish to play a part in our exciting, expanded efforts, please contact Christine Monterosso (email@example.com) or Mimi Donohue (firstname.lastname@example.org). The more the merrier!
