Director of Education John Crocco Recognized at U.S. Education Conference
Director of Education John Crocco was recognized among 50 peers from the United States at the AASA Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, last week. The AASA is the School Superintendents Association in the United States – the counterpart to the Canadian Association of School System Administrators (CASSA), which selected Director Crocco as the top school administrator in the country in Montreal in July 2015.
More than 8,000 educators participated in the AASA Conference, and Director Crocco was fortunate to be joined by members of his Senior Administrative Team Yolanda Baldasaro, Ted Farrell, Lee Ann Forsyth-Sells, Frank Iannantuono and Giancarlo Vetrone and representatives from CASSA for the presentation.
Mr. Crocco reiterated his comments from last year, when he was announced as the CASSA EXL National Award recipient.
“It may have been my name that was announced, but this honour recognizes the outstanding efforts of Niagara Catholic’s exceptional Senior Administrative Team, who work tirelessly to support the school administrators and staff each and every day,” said Mr. Crocco. “I share this honour with them, with the Board and all staff who serve the vocation of Catholic education for the students of today, and the future. As I have said before, they are a platinum medal team of leadership, knowledge, talent and friendship and represent the very best in Catholic educational leadership in Ontario.”
