The principals of Briarcliff Manor’s three schools provided extended glimpses Monday night of the activities that invigorate their buildings.
Their appearance, at a school board work session, came two weeks after parents decried the lack of input from the principals in the district’s 2012-13 budget, being readied for adoption next week.
The principals—James Kaishian from the ; Susan Howard, ; and Nadine McDermott, —made individual PowerPoint presentations to the board outlining their goals and accomplishments, then jointly answered trustees’ questions. The PowerPoint slides will be made available online, officials said.
“This was great,” one resident said later during public comment, “but this really should have been, to my mind, the beginning of the budget process.”
He suggested that “next year, it would be great to hear it at the beginning.”
