Heather Bohaty, Superintendent

Heather With Students

"The opportunities and experiences I have gained over the last 21 years working for Derby Public Schools have provided a strong resource and foundation. Throughout the years personal relationships within the district and community have been established that will prove to be essential in the role of Superintendent of Schools. Through providing quality instruction for our students, supporting staff needs and maintaining open communication with our families, I will strive to ensure Derby continues to be a community that values education and meets these expectations both in the short-term and long-term future. Experience as a teacher at the secondary level, an administrator at the elementary level, in addition to all the leadership opportunities presented serving the past 7.5 years as the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, have provided a wide range of experiences that have prepared me for this opportunity to serve our community.

I intend to listen to others, learn from all viewpoints, lead by example and have open  and effective communication with stakeholders in Derby Public Schools. I will have a visible presence in our community to ensure success and meet the  educational expectations of our stakeholders. As Superintendent, I will continue to  learn about the district as it evolves in relation to academic needs, effective  communication and ensuring post-secondary success."
