Student and Family Supports
Dr. Lisa Castaldo, Assistant Superintendent for Pupil Personnel Services
Welcome to Suffern Central School District. Every day, our students are given opportunities to learn and grow from our talented and dedicated teachers and staff members. We pride ourselves on providing content rich innovative learning experiences, extracurricular offerings and social and emotional supports while focusing on the safety and security of the children who attend our schools.
Suffern Central is also successful because of the support and interaction of our community members. Whether it’s through the PTA’s, volunteering, attending sporting or arts events, or simply reinforcing the learning experience at home, we believe you are the heart of our District.
As Assistant Superintendent of Pupil Personnel Services, I look forward to working with the community to carry out the District’s mission and vision. If you have any questions or concerns about your experiences here, please reach out to me.
We are dedicated to meeting the individual and specialized needs of SCSD students, tailoring individual programs and supports in order to bolster student success. Through the use of differentiated and innovative best practices and strategies, we strive to enhance a student’s strengths and scaffold their needs in the most appropriate program.
If you are in need of specialized accommodations in order for you to participate fully in your child’s school-related activities, please reach out to us.
