District Announcements

  • Special Services Transition

    As you know, we are experiencing a transition in our Special Services leadership and are fortunate to be welcoming David Feller as Interim Director of Special Services. Mr. Feller most recently served as the Superintendent of Schools in the North Merrick School District for the last 15 years. Prior to that, he was a district-wide administrator for special services in the East Williston School District for 14 years. He has his master's degree in Special Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. He began his career as a special education teacher. Mr. Feller will begin working in the District on October 17.

    Until his arrival, if you have a student related need, we ask that you contact the appropriate Special Education Supervisor, either Cindy Greenberg ( or Catherine McNulty (, depending on your child's grade level.

    If you have a question or concern that you don't think is related to your child's particular needs, or if you simply aren't sure who to contact, please reach out to Sue Fowler,, 914-763-7010.
