Sandra Ehrlich brings 25 years of experience in school support and operations to help schools and districts develop systems to solve problems and expand capacity. A school board member for seven years and an Executive Director in the NYCDOE Office of School Operations, Sandra works best at the intersection of policy, strategic planning, facilities planning, technology planning and implementation, school safety and security. Sandra understands that schools and districts are interlocking systems and has the vision to help districts maximize their human and material resources. Her passion is providing every student with a safe, supportive, comfortable, and effective environment for learning.
