We eagerly welcome you to the EAST ESC Operations Unit which stands ready to assist the 190 sites within the East ESC area in ensuring that our students succeed academically in schools which provide them with a world class education. The educators who comprise the East Operations team bring forth a level of expertise from multiple disciplines, all of which will be available to assist the schools in implementing District policies and procedures. I have no doubt that our collective energies will serve to provide our students with a successful learning experience throughout the 2012/2013 school year. The East ESC Operations Unit will work closely with colleagues in Instruction and in the Parent Unit in order to provide staff at each site with the supports needed. This collaborative effort offers a unique opportunity to provide the necessary resources which schools need. No one person can do it all, but in working together, we can accomplish what others may otherwise deem impossible. I look forward to working with you for what will undoubtedly be an exciting year.
