Two Islip Principals Present at SAANYS Conference

Two Islip educators – Commack Road Principal James Cameron and Islip Middle School Principal Tim Martin – were recently selected to present a workshop, “All In? The Impact of Mandates and Optouts on our Teaching and Learning Communities,” at the State Administrator Association of New York State’s annual conference, held at the Otesaga Conference Center in Cooperstown, New York.

“It was a great opportunity to share and collaborate with colleagues from across New York State,” said Martin

The SAANYS workshop attendees journeyed through the middle school’s mission to develop, maintain and improve the school’s climate and culture through the faculty and staff.  Cameron and Martin shared their experiences, research and implementation of an authentic and uniquely developed climate and culture survey that has been the driving force behind Islip’s professional growth as a community. 

“It is our hope that we empowered school leaders to develop surveys to assess and respond to the unique needs of their districts and buildings,” said Cameron.
