  • Comment

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The following is a letter from Jeffrey Korostoff, New Rochelle School District interim superintendent of schools..

As we head into the final two months of the 2013-14 academic year, I'd like to take a moment to reflect
on some of our district's noteworthy accomplishments to date. Th Family University at New
Rochelle High School and We Are One SEPTA celebration are just two recent examples of
the extensive calendar of events that make our school community so inclusive and vibrant.

First, I want to thank our skillful administrators, teachers and staff for their truly outstanding work with
our students, which is observable each day. What they all share is an unwavering commitment to deliver
the best education possible to the children of New Rochelle. Our district takes great pride in the success
we've achieved so far, and we are committed to reaching even greater heights in the future. We should
all be proud that our graduating seniors will be heading off to some of the most prestigious colleges and
universities in the country, including: Barnard College, Harvard University, Haverford College, Howard
University,New York University, Princeton University, SUNY-Binghamton, Tulane University,
University of Michigan, University of Rochester, University of Virginia, Vassar College, Villanova
University, and Yale University.

I also want to commend our Board of Education for driving the search for our new superintendent. As an initial step, the board hired Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates, a premier executive search firm, to guide this process and I've been most impressed by the professional nature of the firm's work. This process has been robust and I am confident that the board will identify the best candidate for our schools and will not settle for anyone who doesn't meet the district's high standards and expectations.

It is a rewarding experience serving as the interim superintendent. From this new perch, I've had the
opportunity to see even more closely what makes the City School District of New Rochelle one of the
great American public school districts. I am certain our best years lie ahead

Dr. Jeffrey Korostoff.
