Board of Education Meeting Superintendent Agenda Highlights

Posted by Dr. Nagy on 4/19/2024

There were two presentations made at the Board of Education meeting last evening. Dr. Nagy provided congratulations to Dr. Holley who after 5 years working in both districts as Assistant Superintendent was named by the Board as my successor as Superintendent of the BCIT and BCSSSD districts. Dr. Nagy noted that the districts will be in good hands. He also mentioned how he looks forward to supporting Dr. Holley, the administrative team and our two districts in the transition.  Dr. Nagy acknowledged Dr. Holley’s family who was in attendance and then asked Dr. Holley to say a few words to those in attendance.

The second presentation that followed was only fitting that we recognize our Special Olympians in the Special Services School District after Dr. Holley’s comments.  Though all award-winning athletes could not make it last night, we had around 17 who were recognized as well as their coaches for the following sports:  bowling, basketball, volleyball, swimming and track. Dr. Nagy thanked our coaches, organizer Bethann Guenther-Misunas and Assistant Principal Roseatta Darcy who have worked closely with our special Olympics Program. Ms. Darcy has been amazing, but she will be moving out of state at the end of this school year. We wish her well and thank her for all of her contributions. Ms. Darcy came forward to introduce our coaches and Special Olympians by sport. Our Board President Tyler Burrell provided a certificate of accomplishment to each of the athletes after which a picture was taken.

Speaking about the Olympics, BCIT has been asked to host the FIFA World Cup Committee next Thursday, April 25, 2024 from 5:30-7:30pm on a program dedicated to Diversity & Anti-Discrimination in Sports and a discussion about the planning of the Olympics in the USA, Mexico and Canada in 2026. The tickets are free, but registration is requested. Please see our social media or the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce website for more information and to register.

Dr. Nagy congratulated all of the retirees on the agenda. On behalf of the Board, he wished them all the best and thank you for your years of service to our students and districts.

Dr. Nagy also noted how honored he was this past week to attend the Annual Burlington County Principals and Supervisors Association Academic Awards Ceremony honoring the top students in each district. He mentioned how there was great representation for BCSSSD and BCIT.  Congratulations to all of our honorees.

Both districts hosted blood drives over the past month. Dr. Nagy mentioned how honored he was to donate and did not faint. He thanked the Red Cross and our school nurses for the opportunity to allow us to participate and provide staff and opportunity to pay it forward.

Congratulations to Mr. Cooney and our Academy for Performing Arts students who received nominations for Montclair State University Theatre Night Awards Program. We had over 12 nominations for various categories.

The Board approved the Westampton Campus roof replacement which will allow us to move forward on the expansion project for the West campus.
