NECSD Teacher Selected for NYSED's Blue Ribbon Commission on Graduation Measures


Ms. Linda Romano was selected to serve on the New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) Blue Ribbon Commission on Graduation Measures. The Commission will be undertaking a thoughtful and inclusive process to explore what a New York State high school diploma means and what it should signify to ensure educational excellence and equity for all New York State children. Out of more than 400 applications, Ms. Romano is one of 64 selected for the mission and one of ten educators selected from the greater Hudson Valley area. Ms. Romano is the only educator selected to represent Career and Technical Education. More information about the Graduation Measures Blue Ribbon Commission Demographics can be found here and here.

 
Ms. Romano, BSN, RN, is a CTE/Health Science Educator at NFA North Campus and leads the Scholars in Scrubs program at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center. She was previously selected to join the NYSED Reopening Schools Regional Task Force and was named the 2018 ACTE National Teacher of the Year. Each year, students from her classes have the opportunity to become a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) upon graduation. The CNA program is one of 21 pathways offered through Newburgh Free Academy's Career and Technical Education (CTE) program.
