Ross Resigns from Superintendent Position

At the Blind Brook Board of Education meeting on the night of Monday, May 6th, Superintendent Dr. Jonathan Ross and President Ryan Goldstein announced that Ross will be resigning from his position, effective at the end of this school year. Ross will be returning to the position of Assistant Superintendent for Finance & Facilities, a position that Ross held for 14 years, from 2001 to 2015.
Ross expressed his gratitude to the entire Blind Brook community: “It has been an honor and privilege to serve as Blind Brook’s Superintendent of Schools for the past four years. I thank the Board for allowing me the opportunity to serve the students of this community and I thank you for your unwavering support of our school system. I appreciate the interest you have in public education and especially your partnering with our administration, faculty, and staff to ensure delivery of the best possible educational experience for all Blind Brook students.”
Current Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment, Dr. Colin Byrne, will be taking over for Ross as Interim Superintendent of Schools for the 2019-2020 school year. Byrne has previously served as Director of Technology in the Blind Brook school system as well.
Next year the Board will start “a comprehensive search for a permanent Superintendent.” Dr. Ross pledged his full support behind Dr. Byrne in his statement to the community, also pledging to “do everything possible to help to move our school system forward in the future.”
