I have been notified that the public comment period on the proposed changes to the Annual Professional Performance Review for teachers has been opened. Public comment on the pending evaluation regulations should be sent to Eval2015@nysed.gov
 this is your opportunity to let the Board of Regents know your thoughts and concerns. I encourage you to make constructive comments and help make the system better for everyone especially the children.
It’s anticipated that draft regulations will be announced at the next Board of Regents meeting on May 18-19, after which the public comment period will remain open for specific comment on the new draft proposal.

Welcome to the LHS*PTG!
The purpose of the LHS*PTG is to promote the welfare of Lloyd Harbor School by maintaining a close working relationship with parents, faculty and administration. The organization sponsors many programs throughout the school year including meetings, social events and fundraisers. In addition, volunteer committees provide assistance to the school for various functions. Since the success of the organization depends on parent involvement, its goal is 100% parent participation. Volunteering on one or more committees is a wonderful way to meet other parents, share ideas and feel part of the Lloyd Harbor community.
The LHS*PTG meets monthly, usually in the Little Theater. By attending these meetings you will gain a better understanding of what goes on in the school. In this way, you can become more involved in decisions that affect your child. However, if you are unable to attend these meetings, the LHS*PTG board keeps the entire Lloyd Harbor community informed by putting the minutes from each meeting on our website; http://www.lhsptg.org.
