District Superintendent

BOCES services are the backbone of our relationship with our component districts. These services have greatly benefited from the shared viewpoints of all our colleagues in Dutchess County. Together we work hard to maximize educational resources to support student success as defined by New York's Learning Standards.

At Dutchess BOCES , students are at the center of all of our decisions and actions.  We focus upon what each student needs to be successful and work to help all students reach their full potential.  The result is a supportive, responsive community that works to achieve excellence in learning each and every day. 

District Superintendent Services

In addition to serving as the Chief Executive Officer of Dutchess BOCES, the District Superintendent serves as the Commissioner's representative to the component districts, as well as the liaison between local districts and the State Education Department. The District Superintendent is able to call upon the resources of the State Education Department, colleges and universities, as well as professional staff of the BOCES to provide consulting services.

Best wishes for success to all students and educators in Dutchess County.
