Message From the Superintendent


Dear Dobbs Ferry Community Member,

On Tuesday, October 21st, our community passed the Capital Projects Bond by a 2:1 margin. We are grateful for this strong showing of support for the facilities and infrastructure needs in our schools, as well as the necessary changes and refurbishing of our existing athletic spaces. It is clear that our community understood that financial timing and necessary improvements are at an intersection which allows the District to take advantage of this window of opportunity as we continue to make Dobbs Ferry schools the central hub of our community.
 
In the months ahead, we will be working with our architects to turn ideas into design plans that will be sent to the New York State Department of Education for approval. Timelines are everything in a project of this scope and we are committed to doing the necessary work to keep the projects on schedule.
 
Our future is bright and we believe that the approval of the Capital Projects Bond signals the advent of multiple opportunities for us to partner with the Village, parents and the broader community.
 
I hope that you share in our excitement as we think and plan for the years ahead.



Best Regards,

Lisa Brady, Ed.D
Superintendent
