Public school superintendents meet with Bronx borough president

One by one, new regional superintendents in The Bronx took to the podium at the board of education headquarters Wednesday. Each one of them telling Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr., and members of the local community boards that they are prepared.

As the mayor and the schools chancellor continue their restructuring of city schools, the school year will take on a different look, feel and tone. A major effort is underway to make Bronx schools more parent-friendly. A big change in the school system is the hiring of parent coordinators, who will be in every Bronx school this year.

Carrion says he's going to be paying close attention to how the new system works, and says if there are any glitches, he'll make sure they're rectified as soon as possible.

The superintendents say although they feel they're prepared, they warn parents there may be some bumps in the road.
