Dear Webster Families,
Welcome to Webster School where our mission is: We Educate the Whole Child. Our dedicated and talented faculty and staff are committed to addressing each childs individual talents, strengths and needs. With curriculum aligned to Common Core Learning Standards, we insure that students are cognitively engaged and challenged with real world problem solving as we prepare them for College and Career Readiness. Collaborating with parents and community members is an integral part of each childs success, and helps to create a dynamic environment where our students are celebrated for their academic and creative accomplishments. Our values are embedded within the Webster Way which we live on a daily basis. The Webster Way stands for: Wise, Empathetic, Benevolent, Sincere, Trustworthy, Educated, Respectful and Responsible. On behalf of the entire Webster family, I look forward to an amazing school year for all students!

INTERIM SUPERINTENDENT'S BUDGET MESSAGE
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.

UPDATE on CSDNR SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH
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.
