Message from the Superintendent

  • Dear Community,

    I hope that everyone is staying warm this winter! As always, thank you for your continued support of our district and our students. I appreciate all that the community does to make a difference in the lives of our children. We continue to search for an outstanding team leader for our high school. In the meantime, Mrs. Mary Walker has agreed to be our Interim High School Principal. Mrs. Walker retired from Camden CSD in June of 2018 after serving the Camden CSD as their Middle School Principal for 13 years. Mrs. Walker has hit the ground running and has been an asset to the district already.

    In the fall newsletter it was mentioned that there were two capital projects taking place this year. I am happy to let you know that the canopies over the walkways and the skylight in the cafeteria have all successfully been replaced along with the building being grounded with lightning rods.

    The Strategic Planning committee has narrowed their focus to three main areas of improvement; College and Career Ready, Social and Cultural Responsiveness, and Citizenship. Under that broad heading of College and Career Readiness, the committee is focused on graduation rates, business and college partnerships, grading, homework, and curriculum review. The Social and Cultural Responsiveness subcommittee is focused on a safe and culturally responsive school. The Citizenship subcommittee is focused on civics, citizenship, community service, digital citizenship, and school spirit.

    If you are interested in joining any of these subcommittees, please reach out to me at 315-495-4480 or cstocker@stockbridgevalley.org. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Cindy Stocker
    Superintendent of Schools
