The COMMUNITY Charter School Board of Trustees elected five new members with a diverse range of experience in fields such as education, accounting and youth development to three-year terms on the board. All appointments received approval from the New York State Education Department.
Daniel S. Ricigliano, CPA, a three-term veteran of the board, was elected president and second-term member Michael J. Littman was elected vice president.
The new appointments come as the East Side charter school implements a comprehensive reform effort aimed at improving student achievement.
“COMMUNITY Charter School has become a community asset, providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for its 315 students,” said Ricigliano. “With our ‘School Improvement Plan,’ the board looks forward to help affect changes to improve student learning and continue the school’s mission to support students’ academic achievement and social-emotional development.”
