From the Superintendent
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Have a great summer, and thank you for your support this school year!
I hope summer break will provide everyone an opportunity to enjoy some fun in the sun with family and friends. I hope we can all return in August, rested, recharged, and ready for another great year of “Learning & Growing Together.”
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Introducing Right At School, our new elementary after-school program provider
We are excited to announce that the nationally recognized after school student enrichment program provider Right at School is coming to District 2! Beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, Right At School will run the district’s after school programming for Johnson and Tioga schools.
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Thank you, BSD2 teachers and staff!
Every year, Teacher Appreciation week falls at the beginning of May – a time when we are all encouraged to #thankateacher. As I approach the end of my first year as a superintendent, though, I’m compelled to thank our over 200 teachers and another 200-plus staff members for their combined contributions toward the education of the more than 2,000 students we serve here in District 2.
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Student safety is our top priority
While we always hope that lockdowns are the result of false alarms, we diligently prepare for the worst-case scenario.
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Enjoy spring break, and finish the year strong!
Before we know it, the end-of-year celebrations will be here, and summer break will be upon us. I hope that everyone enjoys spring break and comes back focused and ready to finish strong!
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Take the 5Essentials, and help shape your school's climate and culture
Your response will also demonstrate your commitment to our new motto, as taking the 5Essentials is a quick, easy way for all of us to learn and grow together.
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: District 2’s generous spirit shines bright during the holiday season
This holiday season, I would like to reflect on our BSD2 Community’s generous spirit. The selfless giving of our staff and community emphasizes to me how much we care about each other in District 2, and how our presence in each other’s lives is one of the most important presents we can give or receive.
FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT: Giving thanks for a warm welcome from a wonderful community!
Thanksgiving is here, and it is my hope that this holiday finds you with an abundance of blessings to celebrate.

Whether you're a parent, student, staff member, or community member, you will play an important role in this work. Together, we will ignite within our students a lifelong desire to learn and succeed in an ever-changing world.
