OSSINING, N.Y. State Commissioner of Education John King Jr. and other education officials are planning to visit Ossining Tuesday.
Kenneth Slentz, the deputy commissioner of education, and Harry Phillips III, a member of the Board of Regents, are planning to join King in examining the First Steps early literacy program for newborns through four-year-olds and their caretakers. The group will also meet with students in Ossining High School's Science Research and College Level Programs.
"We are honored that our state leaders have selected the Ossining school district for a site visit and proud of the accomplishments that our Ossining district family colleagues have attained on behalf of all of our students," Phyllis Glassman, Ossining schools superintendent, said in a press release. "While our mantra is continuous improvement, we are pleased with so many of our successes."
Ossining Board of Education President Bill Kress said the state leaders will be very welcome in the district.
"I am confident that Dr. King, Dr. Phillips and Mr. Slentz will be most impressed with our accomplishments as well as our efforts to continually improve," he said.
