Community Input Survey Re: Superintendent Search

Due to the retirement of the Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Daniel Giordano, the Lindenhurst Board of Education has begun its search for the next Superintendent, voting at the September 2021 meeting to enlist the aid of Western Suffolk BOCES in the search process.

Community and staff members are asked to provide their input through an online survey which will remain opened until October 30, 2021. Areas such as rating the importance of a potential candidate’s qualifications and personal characteristics, as well as his/her abilities and experience with school staffing, instruction, board relations, district operations and finance will be polled.

CLICK HERE to access the survey. Additionally, a copy of the survey is available to be picked up at the McKenna Administration Building.

Representatives from a variety of district stakeholder groups will also have an opportunity to meet with the search facilitators in October 2021 to provide additional input.

Recruitment efforts will be extensive, with interested candidates submitting application information through November 30, 2021. Interviews are expected to begin in January 2022 and continue through several rounds which will conclude no later than April 2022.

The Board of Education will thoughtfully consider the Community Survey results and Stakeholder input when making their selection.

A final decision will be made by the Board of Education and announced no later than the May 2022 Board meeting.

Lindenhurst UFSD Will Never Forget

Throughout the district students and staff honored the memory of the fallen heroes, lost 20 years ago on Sept. 11, 2001.

At the elementary level, students, donning red, white and blue observed a moment of silence followed by the singing of the National Anthem. Some schools added American flag displays to their grounds as well.

At the secondary level, students watched 9/11: One Day in America, an American documentary television miniseries that explored the events of the day. Additionally, at the Lindenhurst High School, students learned of the story of Pat Tillman, the NFL player, who put his football career on hold after 9/11when he chose instead to enlist in the Army. He subsequently gave his life in Afghanistan.

“As our students were born in a post 9/11 world, it is our obligation to ensure that we honor the memory of our fallen heroes,” said Superintendent Dan Giordano. “The Lindenhurst school community will never forget.”

Fantastic Firsts

The classrooms have been prepared, the buses are on the road and the sound of laughter has returned to the hallways and playgrounds of the Lindenhurst Union Free School District. September 2 began another school year for the district and students smiled as they reunited with friends, met new teachers and familiarized themselves with their surroundings. 

The first day of school was not only the start of a new academic year, but for many in the district, it was the start of a new chapter of their lives. Kindergarten students entered classrooms for the first time, leaving behind the security of their parents. Sixth-graders entered the middle school and were introduced to the idea of changes classes and getting to know multiple teachers. Ninth-grade students officially became “high-schoolers,” and the twelfth graders experienced the last “first day” of their Lindenhurst education.
