UPDATED: B-BP District to Name New School Chief Today

The Board of Education will officially announce the hiring of a new superintendent.

The Bayport Blue Point School District will announce the newly hired school superitndent on its website at noon today and will hold a meet-and-greet for residents and taxpayers on Tuesday evening.

Board of Education President James March said a special board meeting will take place October 2 at 8 p.m. in the high school cafeteria for the purpose of officially appointing the new school leader. There will be a reception for the community and media after the announcement where attendees will be able to ask questions "on an informal basis," said March.

"I am expecting an official announcement to be posted to our website today providing background, salary and process," March told Patch Monday morning in an email.

The district has had an interim superintendent, Neil Lederer, since this past July after the resignation of Anthony Annuziato, who took a school chief role at Smithtown school district after serving the district for seven years.

This story was updated to provide the specific time the hiring information will be posted on the district's website.

Hopefully, the incoming Superintendent will develop a concrete plan he/she can communicate to the community to address the 2012 State Test Results for the elementary schools, specifically the depressed ELA/Math scores for Blue Point. The BOE's September 27 presentation on this matter provided little assurance that the BOE had either seriously evaluated the data or worked to develop a corrective plan of action. Further, on a potentially related matter there appeared to be a relatively high teacher turnover rate in Blue Point (30% in 2010/2011; 39% in the previous yr) based on Blue Point's NYSED's 2011 school report card. Why is that the case and how could this have impacted the teaching curriculum and ultimately the students' learning?

For the benefit of the incoming Superintendent and the rest of the BOE. http://www.schooldigger.com/go/NY/schools/0411000174/school.aspx Blue Point has a 2 star rating (out of possible 5) on this website.
