Dr. Feijóo's Entry Plan

Dr. Laura Feijóo recently presented her plan for taking the helm of the City School District of New Rochelle when she becomes Superintendent on Nov. 1, 2019.  

She told the Board of Education at the Sept. 24 meeting that she will build on the District's Strategic Roadmap with concrete benchmarks after talking a deep, comprehensive look at the school system. Using the Roadmap as starting point, she plans to add "SMART" (Strategic, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound) benchmarks to guide the 11,000-student school system.
"My plan is to take the Roadmap to the next level and create SMART goals that are measurable and that reflect what was intended by these statements throughout the plan," she said at the meeting.
The objectives, laid out in the Roadmap, are to provide a high-quality and challenging education in safe and supportive schools with supurb staff. Engagement and outreach and resource management support those goals, she said.
"We have to know that across the schools, kids have access to the same rigor and curriculum as the kids in each and every other school," she said. "Each school has to have a learning plan that directly correlates with the measurable objectives."

In Our Schools

A Letter from the Interim Superintendent

Dear New Rochelle community,

This year continues to bring us many achievements and great news of our students, teachers and more.  

We’ve had teachers chosen to become STEM leaders; they will continue building on our creative inquiry-based lessons across our District that make use of everything from hot cocoa to an adult-sized robot. New Rochelle High School has chosen a valedictorian and salutatorian who are two great examples of our stellar student body.

Visitors to our District have included the head of the National Urban League, who taught us the importance of exploring our own histories and sharing in the celebration of others’ histories as well.

What a perfect message for our school district and its students, who come from virtually every corner of the world.

Our Black History Celebration was absolutely inspiring, our Science Research Program continues to grow and our PAVE arts students never fail to astound us with their boundless creativity. Our athletes continue to score honors near and far – even in Orlando, Florida, where our cheerleaders finished strong in a national competition.

In order to provide the best settings for our 11,000 students to experience the joy of learning and exploration, we must provide more than our incredible teachers and dedicated administrators and staff. We also must provide attractive, comfortable settings that stimulate the mind and imagination.

To that end, our $106.5 million construction program continues to restore our buildings to top condition.

As always, I invite you to get to know our schools, teachers and students better.

These are all crucial aspects of a system that provides a top-quality education for all.

Dr. Magda Parvey

Interim Superintendent of Schools
