Stamford, CT - Stamford Public Schools (SPS) released its 2016-2017 Annual Report to the Community, which is now available on the SPS district website and will be in mailboxes of homes and businesses across the city. The report, as well as the SPS Strategic Plan Overview: Challenging, Inspiring and Preparing Students for the Future, is being distributed along with 8,000 copies of Stamford Plus magazine’s summer edition.

The report provides a snapshot of the 2016-2017 school year and will serve as a baseline for measuring progress over the coming years. Report highlights include profiles of and insights from administrators, teachers and graduating students, as well as alumni who recognize SPS as the foundation for their current success.

“I think people will be impressed that nearly 95% of our teachers, instructors and counselors have a master’s degree or higher, that our student-to-certified staff ratio is 10-to-one and that our four-year graduation rate is 91.3%,” said Superintendent Earl Kim. “When readers dive deeper, they will read first-hand accounts from those who guide our students as well as from those who have reaped the benefits of our school system.”

The 2016-2017 Annual Report to the Community features SPS staff: Scofield Principal Scott Clayton, Executive Director Student Support and Special Programs Mike Meyer, 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year Vin Urbanowski and 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year First Finalist Jennifer Bernstein.

The report celebrates Academy of Information Technology & Engineering Senior Natalia Kotowski (Fairfield University Class of 2022), Stamford High School Senior Jordan Ordonez (Columbia University Class of 2022) and Westhill High School (WHS) Senior Meghan Prabhu (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Class of 2022).

Many of our alumni attribute the skills and knowledge gained during time spent in SPS to their current success. This year Writer Nadira Hira, WHS Class of 1998 and President Cornell University Martha Pollack, Rippowam Class of 1975 are featured.
