-- A message from James Welter, ICS Interim CEO/ Chief Academic Officer
It really is an honor to serve as Interim CEO for Irvington Community Schools. The pandemic has not been easy for our students and families. And, at times, we can fall into the trap of focusing on all of the challenges. But, if you’re willing to look at the bright side, the pandemic has also brought us a lot of opportunity: our parents and students appreciate more than ever the importance of in-person instruction; the ICS Board is more engaged in our schools than ever before; and our staff understand the importance and breadth of their work. And, yes, this year is going to be challenging and there will be many obstacles to overcome. However, I am excited about the opportunities these challenges bring. And, perhaps, more so about what embracing these challenges mean in terms of producing positive outcomes for Irvington Community Schools and our students.
