WPCNR THE FEINER REPORT. By Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner. September 2, 2015:

Great news! The Greenburgh Central School Board has decided to appoint  Dr. Tahira Chase as the permanent Superintendent of Schools for the school district. The announcement was made yesterday at a program for school faculty.

Dr. Tahira Chase, who had been serving as Interim School Superintendent,  is doing a terrific job.  I have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Chase and her team on an architect/engineering mentoring program for students. We discussed the program last December and by January the program was up and running! This program enables young people to work with seasoned architects/engineers and to be eligible for $10,000 scholarships!

We are currently working on an exciting technology initiative that will prepare students for high paying jobs when they complete their education. And – the town and school district are also looking at shared service opportunities to save taxpayer dollars.  Am very impressed with the innovations taking place at the school district and the dedication and passion for education among educators who work in the school district.

In past years the school district has been subjected to “bright flight” and bad PR. My recommendation: give the school district another chance.

There are many positive things happening at Greenburgh schools. The district may not be currently rated as the number one, two or three districts in the country. But – big progress is being made.
