A Message from the Superintendent

  • Greetings Westbury Families and School Community,

    It is my honor and privilege to have been selected as your Superintendent of Schools and to lead Westbury Union Free School District into the 2021-22 school year. Although this year marks my 27th year as a public servant in education, I am excited and grateful for this new journey. I look forward to building an equitable, inclusive, and transparent culture that fosters growth and development for our entire school community.

    As we enter a NEW ERA at Westbury School District, our work will be guided by our 2021-22 Westbury strategic goals. Such goals will ensure that we Engage, Reconnect, and Accelerate our entire school community by any means necessary. With the support of our dedicated Board of Education, the Westbury School District team of staff, faculty, and administrators stand poised to take our beloved school district to its next level of excellence.

    During my first 90 days, I will familiarize myself with all aspects of our school community.  Working alongside the Westbury School Board, my leadership team and I will help cultivate a culture where everyone is invested in our mission to empower children to achieve their dream in a safe and healthy environment.

    I believe every child deserves a World-Class educational experience while enrolled at Westbury Union Free School District.  Building on this district’s strong foundation, setting high expectations, and preparing our students academically, socially, and emotionally will place them in a strong position to engage in global experiences and give back to their beloved community.  This critical work will require our best efforts to work strategically and collaboratively. Based on what I have already learned about the Westbury School Community, I know we can do it.

    As your new Superintendent, I am thrilled to serve Westbury Union Free School District and begin working with the school board, students, staff, families, and the community. Our children and community benefit tremendously when we work together as committed partners, especially at this important time in our history. Together, we will continue to strive for our next level of excellence and develop life-long learners who will lead in a global society. My door will be open should you wish to contact me. #WeAreWestbury

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Tahira A. DuPree Chase
    Superintendent of Schools
