Dear Members of the Putnam Valley Community:

After an extensive search process, I anticipate that the Board of Education will appoint Dr. Letitia Payne to the position of Assistant Principal at the Putnam Valley Middle School tomorrow evening, August 11, 2020, at the scheduled Board of Education Meeting.

Dr. Payne is a graduate of Walter Panas High School and obtained her undergraduate, graduate, and a doctorate from Manhattanville College.  She comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experience in working with middle school children for sixteen years at Anne M. Dorner Middle School in Ossining and then as a supervisor of secondary special education in the Rye City School District.  She brings to us great expertise in the area of RTI, testing coordination, and progress monitoring.

I know that Dr. Payne will form wonderful relationships with our students, staff, and families and that you will join me in welcoming her to our school community.


Dr. Jeremy Luft
Superintendent of Schools
