SARATOGA SPRINGS — Dr. Joseph Greco, K-12 Director of Math, Science and Technology Integration in the Saratoga Springs City School District, has been named the 2017-2018 ACT College and Career Readiness Champion for New York State. The award recognizes individuals who are making a positive impact in their communities through their efforts to advance college and career readiness. The ACT Council selected Dr. Greco from a strong applicant pool due to his involvement with K-12 STEM education, P-TECH and the Early College Career Academy, the expansion of Project Lead the Way in the elementary and middle levels, as well the partnerships he continues to create between the school and the surrounding community.  Dr. Greco’s focus has been on creating equity of outcomes, so all students can access, and be successful in, rigorous STEM programming leading to college and career readiness.

“While the spotlight is currently on our STEM programming, we should be proud of our entire district’s work towards creating learning experiences that strengthen our students’ ability to communicate, collaborate, and persevere in their efforts to solve unstructured problems. That is truly why we are being recognized as New York’s K-12 Champion for College and Career Readiness,” said Dr. Joseph Greco, K-12 Director of Math, Science, and Technology Integration.

The ACT College and Career Readiness Champions are individuals across the country who support ACT’s mission of education and workplace success. They are high school seniors, K-12, postsecondary, and workforce professionals, who have demonstrated exemplary behavior and contributions in support of college and career readiness in their respective communities.
