Superintendent's Notes

April 22, 2022

CCPS Community:

Last night we held our annual CCPS Teacher of the Year Gala, a truly wonderful celebration of the teaching profession. Congratulations to each of the 26 nominees! I would also like to extend a big THANK YOU to our event sponsor, APG Federal Credit Union.

I would like to congratulate our 2022 Teacher of the Year, Nadeline Fleischer-Pile. Nadeline is a fourth-grade teacher at Perryville Elementary School and I have no doubt she will represent us well as she proceeds to the Maryland Teacher of the Year competition. I stopped by Perryville Elementary this morning to congratulate her again and it was so great to witness the celebration with all of her school family.

As I said in my speech last night, CCPS is a family, and we stay together, support each other, and celebrate each other. It is truly an honor to be a part of this second-to-none organization.

Maryland Public Schools Strategic Planning Survey

The Maryland State Board of Education and the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) are drafting a multi-year strategic plan for the future of Maryland's education system. Public schools serve to develop our future workforce and future community leaders, and it is critical that they hear from as many people as possible as they work through this process.

The guiding objective is to develop processes and create space for stakeholder input as the State Board and MSDE work to develop a strategic plan. The strategic plan will guide the implementation of the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future.

Special Education Parent Involvement Survey

Parents or guardians of children receiving special education and related services were mailed the Maryland Special Education Parent Involvement Survey from the Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Special Education/Early Intervention Services in late March. Parents are asked to complete the survey and return it in the postage-paid envelope by May 27, 2022. The Survey may also be completed online. Please look for details in your survey packet. Your feedback will help guide efforts to improve special education and related services in your local school system. Your voice can make a real difference for your child and many other children across the state of Maryland. To learn more, please see click on the links below and/or visit

IKEA Makes Donation to PHS

Scott Dellosso, a teacher at Perryville High School, aims to create a learning environment for his students that is both creative and comfortable. Earlier this year, Mr. Dellosso was connected with IKEA through the Business & Education Partnership Advisory Council (BEPAC) to accomplish this goal. Thanks to a generous donation of various furniture, seating, and tables, Mr. Dellosso's classroom has been transformed into a creative learning space for his students! Thank you to our friends at IKEA who continue to be generous, supportive business partners!
