Dear City School District of New Rochelle Community,
We refreshed our Strategic Roadmap, beginning with my 100-day Listening and Learning Tour and commencing with a series of thoughtful community conversations, to create a brighter future for our students.
Preparing students for college and career is challenging work and requires us to continue creating welcoming and affirming learning environments, in which we build authentic relationships with our students and facilitate culturally-responsive learning experiences. Along the way, we help our students gain agency, celebrate identity, and foster a deeper sense of belonging, with the skills, competencies, and capabilities to be lifelong learners and contributing community members.
Our strategic roadmap sets benchmarks and milestones by which we will measure our progress over the next five years. To this end, we will hold ourselves accountable by adhering to our goals and strategies outlined in the Strategic Roadmap, with continued input from students, parents, guardians, caregivers, and community members. In doing so, we endeavor to address the ever-evolving needs and interests of our students.
Our goal is both simple and complex, ensuring that our schools are collaboratively designed, cutting-edge learning environments of tomorrow that are centered on student success. We must have family engagement in learning and decision-making, and community-based networks supporting our students with enriching wrap-around services that extend before school, after school, and during the summer. Whole child, whole school, whole community, whole year.
We continue to welcome your thoughts, ideas, and feedback as we advance our vision to action: moving forward with purpose.
Thank you for your continued support.
Jonathan P. Raymond
Superintendent of Schools
