Dr. Tangorra to attend fall PTO meetings at each building

On Superintendent Cosimo Tangorra, Jr.'s agenda this fall is spending time at PTO meetings in each of the district's schools. A complete schedule is below.

Although he plans to be continuously engaged with parent groups, the dedicated schedule for this fall is an extension of the "Listening and Learning" tour that Dr. Tangorra embarked on when he came to the district in June. He has held several open community meetings at locations such as Niskayuna Town Hall, the Town of Niskayuna Library, and the District Offices.

At each of the meetings, Dr. Tangorra has asked those in attendance to share with him any information they believe will help him be successful in the job.

"The community has been incredibly welcoming and the conversations have been very helpful," he said. "My goal is to keep building and strengthening relationships that enable us to work together for the benefit of our students and the future of our district. I am looking forward to getting to know more of the people this fall who make our school community such an active and special place.

Dr. Tangorra attended meetings of the Booster Club and Friends of Music earlier this month.
