It starts and ends with relationships. That is the takeaway we were left with from our conversation with Dr. Tim Terranova, superintendent of the Victor Central School District.
“Education starts and ends with relationships,” he explained during a conversation on The Debrief’s deep dive into school reopening plans. “Reopening will be a test of relationship building and strengthening. If we can collectively get that piece right — the hybrid model can work.”
Terranova discussed the importance of reopening plans, and the work that went into them. And even though Victor is considered a district of means, there is plenty of concern among residents and taxpayers about the future. Administrators are worried about what it will take to continue delivering the level of education people expect – as the state threatens to cut funding by 20%.
