South Orangetown Central School District

Dear South Orangetown Community,

As I shared in the April 15 SOCSD Strategic Plan Update email, over the past several months, we have been focused on aligning our school district’s leadership structure to our long-range strategic plan. We have restructured central administration and added new positions as part of the 2019-2020 budget to better serve our students, families and staff members.

We are currently working to identify outstanding candidates for key administrative positions, including Principal of Tappan Zee High School and Director of Staff Relations. In the meantime, our Leadership Team has measures in place to continue to cover current, and anticipated vacancies and ensure that there are no gaps in district operation.

This is a time of strategic growth and opportunity for our school district. I look forward to updating you as these searches progress.


Robert R. Pritchard, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
