Community Update from our Board President

Hamtramck Public Schools Letterhead

January 24, 2022

Dear Hamtramck Community,

Thank you for your continued patience and commitment to Hamtramck Public Schools during these difficult times. We know it certainly has not been easy, especially these past several weeks, but through your support, we have overcome many obstacles to provide the high-quality education the community’s children deserve. I’m writing to you today to provide a brief update on the district’s leadership.

As you may recall, Mrs. Ahmed went on leave earlier this school year.  As we begin the second half of the school year, we wanted to inform you that Mr. Nagi will continue to serve as Interim Superintendent, as Mrs. Ahmed remains on leave until further notice. Mr. Nagi will receive additional support from the Board and staff, as needed, to ensure our children continue to receive the services they need to grow academically, socially and emotionally.

Hamtramck Public Schools has been faced with a variety of challenges due to the global pandemic, but under the leadership of Mr. Nagi, and through the continued commitment of our families, teachers and staff, we have been able to maintain the delivery of exceptional education services to our scholars with minimal disruption. Through it all, we have demonstrated that we can work together as a community to navigate these challenges and we remain devoted to doing so to ensure your children can excel both inside and outside the classroom. For that, we are grateful.

We are excited to see Hamtramck Public Schools build upon the momentum it has developed over the first half of the school year and we appreciate your continued dedication to the district and our community. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Superintendent’s Office at (313) 892-2012.  We remain committed to providing updates on the district’s leadership and keeping you informed.

Thank you for serving as our partner in your child’s education.
