  • Welcome to the Greenburgh Central School District!

     

    I am very proud (and honored) to serve as your Superintendent of Schools. Since my appointment in 2012, I have always viewed our district as one of the most progressive school districts in the state of New York. Our faculty, staff, parents and community make up a diverse group of individuals who collectively agree on one singular goal—to secure the best possible education for our students.

     

    This is an exciting time in Greenburgh as we have experienced growth and promise in recent years. In 2016, our graduating class was accepted to colleges and universities including Columbia University, Carnegie Mellon University, Ithaca College, George Washington University, Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, Purdue University, and the University of Pennsylvania. What’s more, our graduating seniors were offered more than $7 million in scholarships and grants. We have consistently maintained a 90%+ graduation rate.

     

    I am proud to note that Greenburgh has been designated a school district in good standing by the New York State Education Department. In addition, we continue to implement Common Core English Language Arts and Math standards from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. Moreover, our schools have embraced the International Baccalaureate (IB) program with a passion.

     

    This year, we hired a new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Director to guide our District into the 21st century by encouraging collaborative learning with a focus on being college and career ready. Furthermore, we continue to provide our dedicated faculty with professional development opportunities that focus on technology, writing and research, and implementing the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. The methodologies of UDL will ensure every student in the Greenburgh Central School District will have access to learning. In the late Summer, we launched the introduction to UDL to our faculty and administrators. The training will be ongoing throughout the 2016-17 school year.

     

    We are also developing new corporate and college partnerships to provide real-world and global experiences for Greenburgh Central School District students through music, travel and the arts.  Through programs like the Superintendent’s Tea, the Community Engagement Task Force, collaboration with PTA and other methods, Greenburgh continues to reach out to the local community for support, ideas and collaboration. I am confident that, collectively, we can continue to move our district forward.

     

    I eagerly anticipate our continued work together this year, as we experience the growth of our school district and community, build trusting relationships and a culture of caring, and have a great deal of fun along the way. Here’s to another great school year…

     

    Respectfully yours,

     

    Dr. Tahira A. DuPree Chase

    Superintendent of Schools

    Our Children. Our Focus. Our Future.
