Commissioner Elia Makes Listening a Priority

New Commissioner makes 'listening' a top priority

"The most important thing is to listen to see what the issues are," Commissioner MaryEllen Elia told parents during a recent school visit. Elia has made listening a top priority since taking office in July, traveling the State to hear from educators, parents, lawmakers and community leaders. In this video, the Commissioner visits the Sweet Home Central School District in Western New York, where she started her teaching career in 1970.
