Hinsdale CSD is a preK-12 school with around 430 students and is located in beautiful Cattaraugus County. Hinsdale CSD offers a comprehensive education model in order to help prepare our students for a global economy. Our mission reflects this as follows:
The mission of the Hinsdale Central School Community is to educate respectful, responsible, and caring students prepared to function in a global society. Our school community will actively engage students in the life-long learning process by fostering an environment of trust and support. We will establish a challenging ever-changing curriculum that focuses on meeting the needs of the whole child.
My current focus is on fostering relationships with students, staff and community and learning the culture at Hinsdale CSD. I am already involved with “Connect Four” which is a collaborative effort between Hinsdale, Allegany-Limestone, Portville and Olean schools. The idea is to become more efficient by sharing and combining forces, with a strong emphasis on student opportunity.
My future focus will be linked to the goals of the current Board of Education, in the areas of data usage in relation to increasing overall student achievement, guiding the Board of Education in developing a plan for Board development, continuing to collaborate with neighboring school districts, monitor fiscal expenditures and budget development, support a healthy and safe environment for our students and continue to focus on increasing our graduation rate and transitioning our students to the next phase of their lives.
