Roy M. Seitsinger, Jr., Ph.D., Superintendent
Welcome to Preston Public Schools
As the new Superintendent of Preston Public Schools it is important to acknowledge and respect the hard work and dedication that has made PPS the warm, welcoming and achievement oriented learning community that educators and residents so proudly acknowledge. As a school district, it is evident that the entire team of educators, parents, and community members are committed to ensuring student well-being, quality learning experiences and the simple joys of life for all children. This commitment is demonstrated through a supportive district budget, a dedicated staff and community leaders that recognize the importance of a 21st century education. As the previous superintendent, Dr. Welch has stated, “an ideal teacher-student ratio in conjunction with a focused academic program accompanied by appropriate support services are designed to guarantee that every child has a successful experience.” It is my honor and privilege to support, continue, and attempt to expand on, the many positive attributes of Preston Public Schools.
Our two school buildings, Preston Veterans’ Memorial School (PK-5) and Preston Plains Middle School (6-8) enroll a little over 400 students. Upon completion of the eighth grade program, Preston students have the high quality options of attending Norwich Free Academy (Designated High School), Ledyard High School, Ledyard Agri-Science High School, Grasso Vocational Technical High School, Norwich Vocational-Technical High School, New London Science and Technology Magnet High School, or Marine Science Magnet High School.
The district will continue to place emphasis on developing a strong school-home partnership. Parents are welcome in our schools and play an active role as evidenced by the presence of parent volunteers and two active parent-teacher organizations. Our efforts always pay dividends and complement our sustained commitment to the 4 C’s – communication, coordination, cooperation, and collaboration.
Beginning in July 2017 as the district’s superintendent, I am committed to building on the excellent work of the past. As Preston Public School District moves forward I thank you for visiting this website. It is one of many methods we use to communicate our student centered mission. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information about Preston Public Schools. Be well.
