Greetings from the Superintendent of Schools

March 1, 2023

Dear Students, Staff, Families, and Community Members: 

It is an incredible honor and privilege to serve as the next Superintendent of the Nyack Public Schools. I have been deeply moved by the warm welcome and outpouring of support. Thank you for sharing your joy about the Nyack Public Schools with me.

For the next 100 days, I will be an active listener and learner as I desire to know what makes Nyack Public Schools special from all vantage points. My priority will be to build relationships and trust. Trust is the foundation for our future forward. Because I desire to engage in perspective-taking, I will be interviewing a broad cross-section of stakeholders. This will allow me to gain a comprehensive understanding of the strengths, challenges, and opportunities of the educational system. I will also visit schools and classrooms, have lunch with students, attend events, analyze student performance data, conduct a document(s) analysis, and spend time with partner organizations during this process. With a hearty collection of data from the field, I will complete a trend analysis of future hopes, dreams, and aspirations with a final report and presentation. Your voice will help us collaboratively plan for the next levels of growth for the District.

I thank you in advance for your time and for your partnership in continuing to serve the students of Nyack Public Schools. I look forward to partnering with our entire community to support each child in reaching their limitless future.

Susan Yom, Superintendent of Nyack Public Schools
