Interim Superintendent of Schools Appointed
The Millbrook Central School District Board of Education is pleased to announce the hiring of Laura Mitchell as our interim Superintendent of Schools. Laura will join the district on January 1, 2020.
She has over twenty years of experience in education. Fifteen of these years have been in building and district leadership. For the past five and a half years, she has served as Superintendent of Schools in Garrison, New York. Some accomplishments during her time in Garrison include the development and implementation of a K-8 literacy program, a 1:1 Chromebook initiative in grades 3-8, and an approved 9.9 million dollar capital project.
Before her superintendency, she had the rare opportunity to be the founder and leader of an allgirls public school in Astoria, Queens for grades 6-12. This school had a 98% graduation rate and many of the students were the first in their families to attend college.
Laura stated, “I enjoy and am inspired by collaborative work with all constituents. I believe we are stronger together and that the collective mind is far more innovative, creative, and productive than one. I look forward to working with the Millbrook community in continuing to grow an already successful School District that is innovative, engaging, relevant, equitable, and exciting for all.”
Please join us in welcoming Laura Mitchell to the MCSD family.

Retirement Announcement - Superintendent of Schools

We wish him happiness and good health in his future endeavors.
As we transition, we have begun the search for an interim, as well as, a permanent superintendent. Our plan is to fill the vacancy with an interim superintendent (Jan 1 - Jun 30) while we conduct a thorough search for a permanent replacement to take the reins on July 1.
