We're proud of you!



     For the past five years, the City School District of New Rochelle, like so many local school districts in New York State, has endured the damaging effects of a weakened national economy.  Over 200 positions have been lost and valuable educational programs and services have been either reduced or eliminated.  Each year, it seemed as if the Board of Education and district and school administrators were faced with a Morton’s Fork where there were only undesirable options.  Foundation aid from the state was essentially frozen, mandated costs continued to increase, and a 2% tax levy spending cap was imposed.  Faced with these challenges, our District was required to determine which positions, programs and services could be targeted without compromising the quality of core activities associated with our central mission-- the advancement of teaching and learning.   CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING Budget Message 2014.pdf

At the Wednesday evening, February 26th, public presentation to the Board of Education and community, the district's professional consultants reported on the search status for our next permanent CSDNR Superintendent of Schools. At the conclusion of an extensive, ultimately six-month national search, including a strong component of community engagement, the Board of Education expects that a new Superintendent will be hired in May.

The documents found at the links below outline the Superintendent search thus far in greater detail, including: 1) hiring/search process timeline and details; 2) a summary of the community's input regarding our district's strengths and challenges; and 3) a draft of the community's identified criteria for desired candidate background, experience and skills.
