100 days in, Quaker Valley superintendent to meet with community

Tuesday, January 15, 2019 | 6:06 AM

Tammy Andreyko has spent roughly 100 days on the job as superintendent of the Quaker Valley School District.

On Jan. 23, she plans to share with the community what she’s learned thus far and outline her priorities for the district in the coming months.

“Designing for Success: An Evening with the Superintendent” will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Quaker Valley Middle School auditorium. Childcare will be provided.

“It has been my pleasure to serve this community for nearly one hundred days,” Andreyko said in an email. “Each of them has included a great deal of activity. Each day has brought inspiration, excitement, and challenges that reinforced my early observations that the families and young people who call QV their home are a special group.”

Andreyko, who started in Quaker Valley on Aug. 6 and has worked about 100 school days since, said she stepped into the leadership of “a school district that is on the rise.”

That made her determined to hit the ground running from day one.

“With the support of a truly outstanding team, I have been able to do just that. We are already hard at work on building a platform for a successful future for our schools and the children we serve,” Andreyko said.

The district’s priorities for the future include student achievement, safety and security, innovation, comprehensive planning and the construction of a new high school, she said.

Those priorities were developed after she engaged in a “listening tour” with administrators, board members, teachers, parents, children and other area superintendents, she said.

The Jan. 23 conversation is open to all community members, from parents to grandparents to citizens.

“This will be a wonderful opportunity to connect with everyone who cares about education in our area,” Andreyko said. “I am deeply committed to making a positive impact on Quaker Valley.”
