Long Beach Public Schools had an excellent opening day on Wednesday, Sept. 7, as students were welcomed into the 2016-17 school year with enthusiasm from staff members and new opportunities for achievement. 

This school year brings a number of new developments, including the addition of new Computer Networking and IB Computer Science courses at the high school, robotics at the middle school and continued rollout of the 1:1 Chromebook initiative at the secondary level. East School unveiled a renovated library that features new furniture and carpeting, a new wall, electrical improvements, re-painted shelving and a new layout to further support collaboration and learning. Facilities work that was previously completed at the middle school and high school further enhance the continued emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) experiences.

The administration building installation was completed and the new structure, which replaces that which was destroyed during Superstorm Sandy in 2012, now houses all members of the central administration under one roof. Several new administrators have joined the district and seamlessly transitioned into their roles in Long Beach. Jennifer Gallagher was appointed assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. High school students were introduced to their new Principal Jeffrey Myers and Coordinator of Guidance Services Kerry Fallon. West School began the year with new Principal Patrick McKinney.

“Our first day was excellent and filled with excitement for all the positive things ahead,” said Superintendent of Schools David Weiss. “We are pleased to be able to offer such a broad scope of opportunities in which our students continue to excel, and anticipate much success this year.”
