From the Superintendent's Desk
Roy-Hart Community Members,
It is with mixed emotions that I share with you that effective June 30, I will be resigning my position as the Royalton-Hartland Central School District Superintendent of Schools.
On Tuesday, July 1, I will begin the next step of my career as the Superintendent of Schools at the Depew Union Free School District. Between now and then, I will offer my assistance to the Board of Education as they transition to their new Superintendent.
Over the past four years, we have collectively completed the goals that the Board of Education requested of us. We have made significant progress in the areas of school safety, academics, finance, facilities and more. Together, we have improved our schools with a 12.1 million dollar capital improvement project, invested over 1.7 million dollars in our STEAM and Agriculture programs with public and private investments and have made annual capital outlay projects that have improved many aspects of the schools.
I am proud to share that we have been able to develop a long-range financial plan, aligned our curriculum, completed a District Strategic Plan, and will soon complete a long-range Facilities Master Plan for the District that will guide its work for over 10 years. We have navigated over two years of a COVID-19 pandemic and will invest over four million dollars to close the learning gaps and support students in need that were impacted by the pandemic.
During my time in Roy-Hart, I have enjoyed the athletic competitions, music performances, the musicals, awards ceremonies, reading to our elementary students and time spent with my student advisory committee. Being present at the recognition ceremonies for our students and staff, attending sectional, regional and State championships have been truly enjoyable for me. I appreciate the amazing work of the administration, teachers, and staff. The support from the Agriculture Foundation, Sports Booster Club, Music Parents and PTA, and all our parents and community members have offered over the years is a testament to the Roy-Hart community. I will truly miss you, and the memories will last forever.
Once again, thank you for your support over the past four years.
Dr. Hank Stopinski
Superintendent of Schools
