Superintendent of Schools
Secretary: Mrs. Laurie Coccionitti, email@example.com
(June 2018) To begin, I would like to thank voters for their resounding support of the school district budget, which passed by 80 percent of the vote May 15. This is a remarkable testament to the community’s belief in our education system, which continues to be one of the best values in Western New York. Because of the strong support for our schools, Williamsville students continue to excel both in and out of the classroom. Academic achievement remains high and outstanding performances by our students in extracurricular areas continue to be a point of pride for our entire community.
I also want to congratulate and welcome our newly elected school board member, Eric Borenstein, who will take the oath of office Monday, July 2 during the Board of Education’s annual organizational meeting. At the same time, we say good-bye to Mrs. Toni Vazquez who served six years on the Board. Mrs. Vazquez has always been a strong advocate for students and we are grateful for her leadership on many important issues throughout her tenure.
Long-range planning is a tenet we embrace in Williamsville. Sound, conservative planning helped us realize the comprehensive athletic field improvement project completed last September that has resulted in state-of-the-art athletic complexes at each of our three high schools. Now, we are finalizing plans for a new capital project designed to improve the district’s music facilities and add infrastructure to support Williamsville’s award-winning music program. The three high schools, again, would undergo major work while significant renovation work would also take place at the four middle schools. Using a long-range financial plan, the goal is to accomplish the project without increasing taxes. Much more information about this exciting project will be coming soon!
The district’s robust summer school program begins July 5, with the high school program at Williamsville North and the elementary/middle school program at Country Parkway Elementary. Visit the district website at www.williamsvillek12.org to learn more about driver education, music programs, and an extensive array of Community Education classes offered this summer. Stay connected all summer long by following us on Twitter (@WCSD_K12) and on Facebook (@WCSDK12).
Next weekend, nearly 800 seniors will graduate from Williamsville’s three high schools. Their futures hold limitless possibilities and we send them forth well prepared. Their high school commencement marks a new beginning and a personal journey filled with promise and great anticipation for the future. “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams; live the life you have imagined!” (Henry David Thoreau). Congratulations Class of 2018!
