April 2018

April 6, 2017

Dear Members Of The Georgetown Community:

It has been a little while since I posted on the website. With all of the snow days and MCAS, and everything else going on, I just can’t believe we are in April.  But I also can’t believe that I am looking out my window on April 6thand it is snowing.  🙁

You may have heard that one person’s challenges lead to another’s happiness.  This couldn’t prove more true regarding recent circumstances at the Middle High School. Kris Oldoni, Special Education Coordinator, recently underwent shoulder surgery.  He is resting comfortably, but he has obviously missed time at work, making him sorely missed.  As a result, I have spent much more time at the Middle High School, giving me more opportunities to speak with staff and students.  I have been facilitating all of the meetings in his stead.  This has given me the chance to meet many parents and families that I would not have if Mr. Oldoni had not been injured.  It has just been a wonderful experience for me. Kris’ pain is my gain!  I’m sure you all join me in wishing him a speedy recovery!

At the last SEPAC Meeting in March, our speech pathologists for the district presented to our parents.  Amy Frangules, Julianna Reinold, Lisa Bartholomew, and Stacey Vitale did an amazing job of informing parents about what happens when their children attending speech therapy services.  A copy of their presentation can be found under the related services tab on the Student Services Webpage at Georgetown Public Schools.

Work is now being done to prepare for summer school services.  Each year, I plan to make improvements to our summer programming in order to ensure that students do not significantly regress in their skill sets.  Your opinions are always important to me, so feel free to reach out with your thoughts and ideas regarding these services.

I so much look forward to seeing you all at our schools, and continuing to lead our district in the support of your children.

Sincerely and Respectfully,


Jack Tiano

Director of Student Services
