School Snapshot...


Dobbs Ferry High School, Middle School and Springhurst have been each officially recognized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for creating a culture of respect within their buildings and classrooms earning them the special No Place for Hate designation. In compliance with the New York State Dignity for All Students (DASA) Act, No Place for Hate offers the opportunity for schools to be recognized for their staff development and student training related to bullying, harassment and discrimination. We are one of only two school communities in Westchester County to become a full No Place For Hate "District." All three Dobbs Ferry schools also received Gold Star honors and a personalized banner. Springhurst proudly displays their banner from last year.

Message From the Superintendent

Dear Dobbs Ferry Community Member,
 
On May 19th, the 2015-2016 Dobbs Ferry School Budget passed by a vote of 314 to 111.  Proposition 2- Bond Reallocation also passed by a margin of 321 to 86. The budget's 74% yes vote will enable the District to continue to provide an outstanding education to all of our students within a sound financial framework.
 
Residents also re-elected incumbents Jonathan Greengrass, who received 304 votes, and Jean Lucasey, who received 290 votes, to the Board of Education. Newest Board member Shannon Johnson received 326 votes.  Jean will complete the one-year unexpired vacancy, beginning July 1st and ending June 30, 2016 and Jonathan and Shannon will serve three-year terms ending June 30, 2018. Congratulations to Jonathan, Jean and Shannon. I look forward to working closely with all of them over the next year.
 
Both Jonathan and Jean have been active trustees and instrumental in helping our School District navigate the new educational terrain by lending their professional expertise to the Board and administrative team. While Shannon is a new face to the Board, she is a familiar face to many community members having served as co-president of the PTSA. Under her leadership, the PTSA became even more proactive in raising community awareness of important legislative issues that affect our schools and expanded the wonderful enrichment programs that they continually provide for students at each school. Each of these trustees has helped push the bar higher when it comes to excellence in education for all Dobbs Ferry students.
 
Most importantly, thank you to our wonderful school community for your ongoing support. The school budget results are very gratifying and affirm the communitys strong commitment to the Dobbs Ferry School District and its global vision.
 
Best Regards,
 
Lisa Brady, Ed.D


Superintendent of Schools
