Welcome to Mexico Academy and Central School District!
Dear Faculty, Staff and Community Members,
My name is Michael Schiedo and I am honored to be appointed as the Interim Superintendent of the Mexico Academy and Central School District. I have more than 34 years of experience in education, over 20 of those years as an administrator, and 9+ years as a Superintendent of Schools.
The Mexico Academy and Central School District has an outstanding academic and extracurricular reputation. My role as Interim Superintendent will be to facilitate a smooth transition as we continue to move the District in a positive forward direction during this challenging and unprecedented time. I am here to provide leadership and support while working with this extremely talented group of administrators, teachers, and support staff. I believe that it is through dedication and commitment that the school district provides excellent programs, opportunities, and experiences for students. I look forward to joining the exceptional collection of colleagues at the Mexico Academy and Central School District during the District's search for a new Superintendent of Schools.
While we are all following the media reports, the CDC guidelines, and recommendations from our governor, my task will be to assist the District in navigating the start of the new school year. As we wait for the Board of Regents task force to provide school districts with guidelines for opening school in September, we will create a district-wide and community task force to assist with our plans.
The District and the community are very fortunate to have a Board of Education that is committed to excellence. With each decision they make, this dedicated group of volunteers continue to keep the best interest of all students in mind. I will spend the first couple of months collaborating and planning with our Board, in addition to working with the administrative team, faculty, and support staff.
Personally, I am very excited to begin my work in the Mexico Academy and Central School District. I look forward to working with everyone. Please feel free to reach out to me via email or phone. If you are in the building, please stop by my office to say hello and introduce yourself. Traditionally, teachers, staff and students have found me to be highly visible, easily accessible and actively involved in the daily educational routines.
Michael Schiedo, Interim Superintendent of Schools
