Chatting With The Superintendent

-An opportunity for informal conversation with the Superintendent and his administrative team

Parents, community members, and school district staff are invited to chat about the Dearborn Public Schools with Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko during informal meetings at several schools this year.  The “Chatting With The Superintendent” evenings are less formal than School Board meetings, providing an opportunity for interactive conversation on a variety of school related topics.

“I appreciate the opportunity to talk with our community and provide individuals with the big picture story of our district, listen to their thoughts and comments, and hopefully answer any questions they may have for me or our administrative team,” Superintendent Maleyko commented.

“Last year, we discovered this casual relaxed setting allowed for good conversation, the sharing of ideas, and a platform that encouraged open dialogue. I’m looking forward to this year’s chats.

The meetings are open to all community members, district staff, students, and parents. All parents are welcome to attend any one of the scheduled “Chats” even if their child attends a different school.  This year’s schedule starts October 23, 2017 at Edsel Ford and ends April 23, 2018 at O.L. Smith.

Maleyko stressed that the conversation will be driven by those in attendance and focus on topics related to individual schools or the District as a whole.  Parents who may want to discuss an individual student should arrange to meet privately with the principal of the school or the child’s teacher.

“Some of the most popular conversations last year included questions addressed by Dr. Dan Patterson, our Director of Testing and Evaluation,” Maleyko noted. “As a result of parent input, Dr. Patterson was able to work with other instructional team members to reduce time spent on District testing.”

Topics that may be discussed at this year’s superintendent chats could include the District’s Strategic Plan and how it is guiding instruction in the classroom.  Other topics may include the School Improvement Process, budget, or addressing the increasing enrollment in the District.  Cabinet members from both the instructional and non-instructional side of the school District’s operations will be on hand to assist in answering questions.

Schools Welcome Senior Citizens:  Premier Citizen Discount Cards Available

The Dearborn Public Schools has a tradition of welcoming and encouraging senior citizen residents to attend school events by offering free admission and other special discounts via the Premier Citizen Discount Card.

Dearborn Public Schools residents over the age of 60 can stop in to any Dearborn Public School or the Administration Building to pick up this year’s Premier Citizen Discount Card.

“Many local residents in the over 60 crowd are Dearborn Public Schools alumni. We are happy to welcome them back to school,” notes Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Glenn Maleyko. “With the Premier Citizen Discount Card, senior residents can enjoy discounts or even free admission to school programs including musical performances, sporting events, and even lunch in the cafeteria.”

The Premier Citizen Discount Card is free and offers great discounts on school activities and school merchandise including:

  • Free admission to all school-sponsored activities* including concerts and athletic events.
  • Due to fees charged to schools for licensing of performance rights, admission to plays is not free, but lower priced tickets are available for seniors.
  • Discounts on select Community Education classes.
  • 10% discount on merchandise sold at school stores. (limit 4 items per year)
    Participation in school lunch programs at reduced prices.  Reduced price is 10% discount on the total purchase.  (Seniors must contact the school in advance to participate.)

“Community members will be proud of the accomplishments of the young people in their neighborhood,” Maleyko added. “We hope that everyone over the age of 60 will pick up a Premier Citizen Discount Card and take advantage of the free admission and discounts to have an entertaining or informative experience in the Dearborn Public Schools.”
