Congratulations to Incoming PTA Exec. and SLT members

Each year all New York City Department of Education schools are required to form a Parent Teacher Association Executive Board and School Leadership Team.  The two organization are responsible for different things in the school.  The Parent Teacher Association is familiar to most people.  It deals with a broad range of issues affecting parents and teachers in the school, from fundraising to community organizing.  The School Leadership Team is limited to forming the Comprehensive Educational Plan for the school, especially focused on education policy within the school.  Both organizations must be formed through elections.  The nominating committee is responsible for arranging the elections and publicizing them.

This year our PTA and SLT elections were held on Friday, May 31st.  We are excited to report the results of the elections and welcome our new parent representatives.

The PTA Elections:

This year there were no contested seats.  Voting by ballot is not required in this case.  A motion was made to elect the uncontested slate of candidates.  The motion was adopted unanimously.

Congratulations and welcome to:

Akeela Azcuy and Matt Gold, our incoming PTA co-presidents!

Theresa Marchetta and Lisa Scott, our incoming PTA co-treasurers!

Matthieu Cornillon and Olly Keane, our incoming PTA co-VP’s of events and fundraising!

Joy Gabriel and Amy Sodaro, our incoming PTA co-parent engagement liaisons!

(This year no one stepped forward to run for recording secretary.  This position is required by DoE regulation.  We will hold a special election for the recording secretary.  Please contact the PTA if you are interested in running.)

The School Leadership Team Elections:

This year there were two seats for parent positions on the School Leadership Team.  Our team requires five parents to officially participate in the team.  One position is reserved for the PTA president.  The other four positions are filled by election.  Each parent serves for two years.  We have overlapping terms, requiring two parents to be elected each year.

This year four parents ran for the two open seats.  This required voting by secret ballot.  Thanks so much to the many parents who came to vote.  We had a good turnout.

Congratulations and welcome to:

Freddy Pena and Jenny Ulloa, winners of the election, and our new School Leadership Team members!

Thanks so much to everyone who ran for School Leadership Team positions.  We should all appreciate their enthusiasm.

(The SLT election was conducted immediately after the incoming PTA board was adopted by motion.  Voting was closed at exactly 9:30AM.  Elinor Tatum and Jenny Ulloa were nominated before the close of the nominations period.  Their names were printed on the ballots.  Freddy Pena and Tim Seiber were nominated from the floor of the election meeting and were write in candidates.  Freddy, Tim and Jenny introduced themselves during the meeting.  Elinor was not able to be present.  We received 63 ballots in total.  One was blank and several had votes for only one candidate.  Tom Gordon and Peter Liem counted the ballots immediately after the election.  The final totals were: Freddy (43), Jenny (38), Tim (20) and Elinor (16).  The ballots will remain in the PTA files for the following year, and are available for inspection.)

The nominating committee wishes to thank everyone for their participation and enthusiasm.
