Letter from Superintendent Dr. Sherman

Dear Schuylerville families,

As we close out the 2019-20 school year, it can easily be said that this is one to remember. Whether your child was just beginning their academic years in the Schuylerville Central School District, graduating as a member of the Class of 2020, or somewhere in between, every student experienced an unprecedented chapter in their education. 

In my 22 years as an educator and 11 years as the Schuylerville Central School District Superintendent, I never imagined a school year ending the way this one has. I also never imagined a time when our faculty and staff would have to drastically change their delivery of education, a change that required almost immediate implementation with little to no warning. I thank them and commend them for their resilience and dedication to our students. By the same token, I also thank and commend the families in our district for offering unending support to your children during the remote learning period. Many of you took on the role of teacher while still working full-time at home. Many of you had to quickly learn to navigate new technologies to better support the at-home instruction. Our district faculty and staff and district families have forged through a time that was unprecedented. But this period of remote learning has also strengthened the relationship and connection between home and school. While we still await guidance as to what the 2020-21 school year will bring, I am confident that no matter what, our district is equipped to handle what will come our way. 

As we receive more information from the state and formulate plans for September, we will communicate those plans and details with you. In the meantime, please take some much-deserved time and enjoy your families and the summer. 

Dr. Ryan Sherman
