Today, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and his Education and Youth Services Department hosted a meet and greet with elected officials and public school superintendents from across the borough.

Superintendents and their representatives from Districts 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12, attended the meeting, at which they discussed capital funding, programs, parental involvement and ways to collaborate and other issues.

Those in attendance included Laura Feijoo, Senior Superintendent, Office of School Support; Council Members Annabel Palma, Vanessa Gibson, Andy King, Andrew Cohen; State Senator Gustavo Rivera; and Assembly Members Michael Benedetto, Marcos Crespo, Victor Pichardo and Latoya Joyner.

“Having these conversations are important for everyone. It gives us an opportunity to hear about the roles of the superintendents and how we as elected officials can focus on individual district needs yet still collaborate boroughwide,” said Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. “We will definitely continue this open discussion in the future and keep the dialogue going.”
