From the President
School Board President
Welcome to 2019/2020 school year! My name is Meg Vaught and I am proud to be the president of the Board of Education for the Tuxedo Union Free School District.
The TUFSD has long been a successful, unique and beloved small school, enjoying a closely knit community that results in positive learning experiences for teachers, children and parents alike.
Our Board of Education is made up of seven non-paid citizens who are each elected to serve three-year terms. As the official policy making body of the TUFSD, the Board of Education sets educational goals and standards, evaluates program effectiveness, develops the annual school budget and balances educational needs with community resources. By electing us to office, you have put your faith in our commitment to education and to our overall goal of making our schools the best that they can be.
Our District has undergone a lot changes in the last 12 months, but one crucial thing has remained constant; the Board of Education, Administration, Faculty and Staff remain fully committed to providing a safe and enriching educational environment so that your children - our students, can continue to have positive and fulfilling learning experiences that will allow them to reach their maximum potential.
Maintaining a good school system ensures the integrity of our community. A good public school increases our quality of life, our property values, and most of all, the opportunities that our children will enjoy in the future. Pivotal planning today for tomorrow will ensure not only that our children receive the best possible education but also that our schools remain the cornerstone of our community. In the months ahead, the District will be moving forward with strategic planning efforts as well as a Capital Improvement Project. Under the innovative and strong leadership of our newly appointed Superintendent/High School Principal Tim Bolhke, the District is poised to meet all challenges we may encounter along the way. Continued community interest and support will guarantee excellence in our schools as we move ahead. The school board can best represent its constituents when members of the community take the time to observe the board in action, express their opinions, ask questions, and communicate their wishes in the public meeting. The Board of Education meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Multipurpose Room. Please join us and let us know what you are thinking.
I am excited about what is to come and I hope that you are too. The 2019/2020 school year promises to be an invigorating, and formative time in our school’s history.
Here's to a happy, productive, and successful school year!
