Superintendent of Schools

From the Desk of Dr. David Moyer, Superintendent

It is that time again when I have the pleasure of welcoming our students back for another school year.

It was a privilege to share in the many great accomplishments of 2015-16.  These include successful utilization of Chromebooks in grades 6-12 to support the Mobil Learning Implementation (MLI) and the development of student growth assessments in all grade levels and content areas.  A more comprehensive list is available in my opening presentation to the faculty.

This year promises to be equally exciting, if not more so.  In July, the Board of Education approved student achievement objectives related to balanced assessment and student engagement.  Detailed information is available by clicking here.

Focus 205 work continues into its second year with Community Engagement Sessions scheduled for October 3 and December 5, 2016.  Additional dates for related Focus205 activities will be released soon.  Details regarding the work of Focus205 are posted at

This year, the District will add instructional coaches at all buildings, covering all grade levels, to ensure that it can properly support teachers in their work to ensure that students are engaged, learning and growing.  Students will experience a new English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum, delivered in the engaging workshop model and featuring more student choice.  MLI will be expanded to grades four and five, also utilizing Chromebooks.  Finally, the Middle School Task Force continues its work to identify areas in which it can better serve that population of students.

The District welcomes several new members to our administrative team.  Mary Baum will serve as the Assistant Superintendent for Learning and Teaching, Erin DeLuga as the York High School principal, Ryan Doherty and Melissa DeLaRosa as assistant principals at York, and Tim Riordan as assistant principal at Hawthorne and Lincoln Schools.

We look forward to another great year!


2016-17 Student Achievement Objectives
