Superintendent Search

posted Sep 16, 2015, 10:02 AM by Dianne Georgantas

The community is invited to complete a survey regarding the desired qualities of our next Superintendent of Schools.  A link to the Survey is here:  **Link to Survey of Desired Traits in the new Superintendent**  The School Committee is asking that anyone living in Longmeadow, whether or not you have children in the schools, take the opportunity to have your voice be heard. The more residents who participate provides us with a more well-rounded picture of the qualities that the community desires to see in our next Superintendent.

Another way for community members to participate in the Superintendent search is to attend a stakeholder meeting. The purpose of these meetings is to have discussion with Dr. Rush, consultant with Ray and Associates, based upon questions that he will ask. Community members will have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Rush without School Committee members present and without being recorded for broadcast. The absence of these two factors was a decision that was made by the School Committee to allow people the opportunity to be able to share their thoughts and to speak freely. 
The first Community Stakeholder Meeting will be on Wednesday, October 7th from 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm in Room A15 of the Central Office of the Schools.  The second will be in the same location on Thursday, October 8, 2015 from 8:00 am - 10:00 am.

Homework Expectations

posted Aug 31, 2015, 11:04 AM by Dianne Georgantas

Homework is an important component of learning and an extension of what we teach every day.  There should be consistency within a district so that all children have similar expectations, regardless of the teacher or school.  For this reason, the administration and staff at Longmeadow Public Schools have developed these homework expectations in order to enhance the learning experiences for all of our children.  Please see the attachment in order to know what will be expected of your child(ren) this coming year.

High Rankings for Longmeadow!

posted Aug 20, 2015, 6:32 AM by Dianne Georgantas

Dear Longmeadow Community:

Longmeadow is renowned for excellence in education, and this has been verified again by two outside sources.  Newsweek has just ranked Longmeadow High School as 207th in the country in America's Top High School's rankings.

In addition, the Niche Report has ranked Longmeadow as the 19th Best District in the State.

Our successes are due to excellent teaching, strong parental involvement and community support.  It does take a village to raise a child, and Longmeadow does an excellent job in meeting the needs of our children.
