We hope you’ve had a wonderful and relaxing summer!
We extend a big welcome to our students, faculty and staff for the 2017-2018 school year. The City School District of New Rochelle takes pride in its reputation for academic excellence, and we look forward to giving the child in your life the necessary tools to be successful in school, and prepared for college and a career.
The last school year was filled with student and teacher successes in academics, sports, arts, science and technology. The high school film program was designated the New York State English Program of Excellence, the high school music program swept awards at Orlandofest, and the high school swim team achieved All-American status. Principal Reggie Richardson was named one of the top principals in New York State by ESSA, a professional organization representing public school administrators and supervisors.
We have been working hard over these last few months to have everything in place for the first day of school. During the summer, the district began Phase II of its $106.5 million capital improvement bond construction projects. This work includes roof repairs and other upgrades to buildings. Students can also expect to see new playground equipment in the fall at five elementary schools: Barnard, Webster, Trinity, Columbus and Jefferson.
Over the summer, the district welcomed several accomplished administrators and teachers. Among them is Amy Goodman, who will serve as the interim Assistant Superintendent for Student Support Services.
The district’s mission is to provide a high-quality education for every child in a safe, nurturing environment that embraces our rich diversity and drives success through a partnership between the community, parents, staff and students. We encourage you to be an active partner in your child’s education and we welcome your daily involvement. We look forward to great things happening in our schools this year.
Brian G. Osborne, Ed. D,
Superintendent of Schools
