Students reaching their highest potential every day…
The brightest future is created by inspired minds that have reached their highest potential. Chris Trzaska and Marian Cutler are committed to working with all residents of South Orange-Maplewood to help all students reach that mark every day.
The absence of clear two-way communication is an unacceptable roadblock keeping us from reaching our greatest potential. Chris and Marian will create multiple and repeated opportunities for listening tours, meet & greets, as well as a unyielding promise to respond to every inquiry within 48 hours.
We have a wealth of opportunities to make SOMA a premier education town. It will take a community-wide, coordinated effort. Chris and Marian are passionate about pragmatic and conclusive evidence, coupled with unprecedented transparency including a monthly column outlining key issues facing our District.
With our focus squarely on doing better for every single student entrusted in our care, everything we support will be deeply rooted in best practices and data-driven decision-making including hard metrics for renewed accountability. Central to this is creating a full-time position for an Assistant Superintendent of Performance who is singularly focused on "thinking about, working on, and closing our achievement gap all the time, every day."
