PS 38 PTA Executive Board
Sent July 22, 2018 via MySchoolAnywhere:
Dear PS 38 Families,
We wanted to address Dr. Yolanda's retirement and the process for finding a new principal. An acting interim principal will be assigned to our school in September, at which time the C30 process will commence to find a permanent principal. The C30 process can take approximately 3 months. http://docs.nycenet.edu/docushare/dsweb/Get/Document-49/C-30.pdf
This past Tuesday at a public CEC 15 meeting, Ms. Anita Skop, our superintendent, announced Ms. Pascale Pradel, the current assistant principal at PS 107, as our incoming acting interim (AI) principal. While this information was provided in a public forum, it is not an official announcement. Our AI principal will officially be announced on September 1; while we expect that Ms. Pradel will be the AI principal, that may not be the case.
Please be patient with this process. We will provide accurate and up-to-date information as we are able. We look forward to a wonderful school year ahead!
