EASTCHESTER, N.Y. - With a new administration set to take over Tuckahoe schools next year, interim Superintendent of Schools Charles Wilson and his successor, Assistant Superintendent Carl Albano will host a meeting to address the district’s strategic plan next week.
While he is a familiar face to Tuckahoe parents, Albano has been active since being announced as the permanent superintendent, hitting the ground running with a series of “town hall” style forums to re-introduce himself and his philosophy for students.
Albano and Wilson will both be on hand next week, beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9 in the William Cottle Elementary School auditorium to address the district’s strategic plan with the public and the PTA.
After spending nine years as principal of the Tuckahoe Middle School, Albano has served as assistant superintendent for four years. He will be mentored by Wilson in the following few months before his tenure at the top officially begins on Aug. 1 next year.
Albano said that he was eager to ingratiate himself to the community quickly in an effort to maintain the Tuckahoe School District’s prestigious reputation as one of the best in the county.
“I joined the district’s administrative team over 12 years ago because I knew Tuckahoe was a wonderful, supportive community, with a proud history and great potential,” he said.
“I will continue to pursue our mission to ‘Prepare Every Student For Excellence’ by supporting our highly competent and dedicated staff, preserving the core values of our schools and stimulating growth and progress into the future.”
