School Snapshot...


Say hello to NAO! He's small but he's got a big personality for a 22.8-inch robot! Better yet, he will aid students in learning computer programing, coding language, computational thinking and other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills. NAO can speak French, do Tai Chi, imitate Darth Vader, walk, talk, run, laugh and even look sad. We're happy he's found a home in the School District. You can call him by his nickname... "Dobbs." Click on the video above.

Message From the Superintendent


Dear Community Member,

Spring is finally here and with it, birds, bees and budget time for school districts across New York State. The school budget vote and school board elections will be held on Tuesday, May 17th from 7 am-9 pm in the Dobbs Ferry High School Gymnasium.

The Dobbs Ferry School District is a vibrant learning community where innovative programs and exciting instructional practices permeate classrooms and inspire students, teachers and staff. For the fifth year in a row, and since the inception of the tax levy cap, the Board of Education is pleased to present a budget to the community in which the school tax levy (0%) is under the State Property Tax Cap (0.12%). As a result, taxpayers can expect to pay a 0.2% increase for the 2016-2017 school year. The proposed budget enables the District to maintain all instructional programs, extracurricular programs, extracurricular activities and staff for next year. 

We are also fortunate to have three highly qualified community members running for three vacant seats on the Dobbs Ferry Board of Education.  Thank you to our current Board of Education President, Michael Goldman, for his nine years of service to our students and school family.  His financial expertise and commitment to the success of all students has helped to shepherd remarkable changes within the District that will further prepare our students for an ever-evolving 21st Century world. 

The Board and I appreciate your continued support of our schools and feel that this budget will continue to provide Dobbs Ferry students with an exemplary educational experience.  I look forward to seeing you on May 17th
 
Sincerely,

Lisa  Brady, Ed.D.
Superintendent
