January Web Message

On January 9, the Board of Education appointed me as Superintendent of Schools. I would like to thank the Board of Education for giving me this opportunity, and I look forward to continue leading our staff, students and the community in achieving our full potential together.
I am honored to have been chosen to serve as the Superintendent of a school district with a distinguished reputation of exemplary student achievement, outstanding community support, and a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities for students. The Baldwinsville Central School District is fortunate to have highly dedicated educators and support staff members who truly care about our students’ well-being and success.
As Superintendent, I will ensure that the District continually strives to do everything we can to enrich the learning experiences for all students and to enhance our wonderful community. To accomplish this, we will remain proactive in all areas, from academics to finance.
We will continue to provide our students with new opportunities in preparation for college and career by continually exploring the feasibility of adding courses that will allow students to expand their skills and knowledge in all areas of learning. For example, next year secondary level students will be offered five new courses – Foundations for College Success, Introduction to Statistics, PLTW Computer Science Essentials/Introduction to Computer Science, and Digital Photography II & III.  
As a District we are committed to presenting a proposed budget each year that has a minimal (or no) tax increase and enables us to maximize and enhance our programs. This month, District administrators will begin presenting components of the proposed 2017-2018 budget at Board of Education meetings. The Board of Education and I encourage all community members to attend these meetings to learn more about the proposed budget. You can find the schedule of meetings and budget components to be presented HERE.
In closing, I want to thank everyone for the support I have received in my role as Acting Superintendent. As Superintendent, I will continue to work hard in conjunction with our dedicated staff and community to promote an environment of excellence for our students.

On behalf of our District administrators and the Board of Education, we wish you all a happy and productive new year!

Matthew J. McDonald
