Upper St. Clair School District administrators recently connected with some senior citizens in the community when the township’s Older Adult Coordinator Amy Kerman invited them to speak at the USC United Senior Citizens luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Dr. Patrick O’Toole, superintendent of schools, began the presentation by thanking the group of nearly 60 individuals for their support of the students and the school district noting the important role that senior citizens have in the community. He reviewed how reduced federal and state funding, as well as pension obligations, have impacted the school district’s budget.
O’Toole also shared a copy of the June 2012 issue of e-BLAST, which is a digital newsletter posted monthly to the school district’s website www.uscsd.k12.pa.us.
Dr. Sharon Suritsky, assistant superintendent of schools, and Dr. Judith Bulazo, director of curriculum & professional development, presented information regarding how today’s classrooms are made up of a very diverse student population and how instruction targets student needs.
“We strive to customize instruction in order to address the uniqueness of all learners,” Dr. O’Toole said.
