As state law requires, I want to remind families of the district's lottery process for prekindergarten placements. Education Law 3602-e and the Commissioner's Regulations stipulate that when there are more eligible children than available prekindergarten seats for a given school year, we must use a random selection lottery. This ensures all children have an equal chance at being admitted to our prekindergarten programs. We will run the lottery to fill forty (40) available prekindergarten slots for our community collaborators. Once those seats are filled (22 and 18) based upon the Board of Education approved RFPs), the lottery will establish a waitlist order should additional placements become available. While we aim to accommodate as many families as possible, the lottery process is designed to be fair and equitable when demand exceeds capacity. We appreciate your understanding as we follow these state guidelines. Families interested in having their child considered for a prekindergarten placement for the upcoming school year must complete the UPK Interest Survey during the open window. The survey will be available online starting Friday, June 14th, and must be submitted by the close date of June 21st. No entries will be accepted before or after those dates. Completing the interest survey is mandatory. After the lottery, the receiving school will contact families of children who received a placement to complete the final registration paperwork and enrollment process. Don't delay - fill out the interest survey between June 14th and June 21st if you want your child considered for prekindergarten this fall.

It is with great pleasure that I introduce our incoming principal, Ms. Robyn Milliner, who will join us on August 1st. Ms. Milliner brings invaluable experience and a steadfast commitment to educational excellence that will enrich our school district. Over the past nine years, Ms. Milliner has served as a school leader throughout New York City public schools, where she has garnered a well-deserved reputation for fostering a nurturing and dynamic learning environment. Her approach to leadership is rooted in promoting academic achievement, cultivating strong relationships between students and teachers, and encouraging personal growth for all. Ms. Milliner's impressive background includes spearheading initiatives that have yielded remarkable results. As principal of a single-gender school, she piloted a phonics curriculum aligned with best practices, resulting in 98% of her kindergarteners reading at or above grade level by the end of the 2022-2023 school year. This achievement is a testament to her ability to coach and develop teachers in implementing innovative practices that drive student success. Furthermore, Ms. Milliner's experience as a turnaround school leader showcases her expertise in change management and collaborative problem-solving. She has successfully led teams in enhancing mindsets and practices, resulting in improved academic outcomes and a four-year charter renewal for her previous school. With her wealth of knowledge, passion for education, and commitment to creating inclusive and supportive environments, Ms. Milliner is poised to lead George Washington Intermediate School into an exciting new chapter. Please join me in welcoming her to our community and extending your full support as she embarks on this new journey. Sincerely, Dan Rehman Superintendent if Schools
