George Ballane of New City has announced that he will run for Clarkstown School Board.
Currently Ballane is the director of Technology at a high school in New Jersey. He claims to have a range of experiences in education including leading strategic plans that have enabled schools to enhance their quality of education, facilities, and technology, as well as resolve major financial issues.
Ballane said he feels strongly that Clarkstown students must receive a quality education, infused with technology, so that they are prepared for the challenges of a changing, technological, complex, and diverse world. It is the responsibility of the board to make sure that this continues today and into the future.
“Clarkstown School District is in need of change. It’s that simple. We are faced with many short term and long term issues including the situation related to Congers Elementary School, Common Core, and a budget that is far from balanced. We can’t accomplish everything overnight, but a solid plan will enable a solid future for Clarkstown,” said Ballane.
Ballane said he holds a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science, a Masters of Business Administration (MBA), and plans to begin his Doctoral Degree in Education this summer.
