Every student, every day, preparing for the future.
Welcome Message from Superintendent of Schools

Spring 2020

Dear Families,

Welcome to Derby Public Schools! This is an exciting time for you and your child as they start their school career. We look forward to working with you to give your child the best educational experience possible. We have an amazing staff of district leadership, teachers, and support staff who all believe in our mission - to create a tomorrow that is better than today by ensuring that all students continually grow and learn. We pride ourselves in having a comprehensive, developmentally-appropriate curriculum to support all student learners.

Communications is a priority in the district and one of our Board of Education’s goals. There are numerous outlets the district will use to communicate including our district website, social media, and the Skylert notification system. You can also follow my Twitter account @DerbySupt for current information, including school cancellations.

Please know that you are always welcome in our schools and we encourage you to actively take part in your child’s education. Each building will provide various opportunities for parent/guardian involvement throughout the year including site councils, parent teacher organizations, and additional school events and activities. Please check our website www.derbyschools.com for dates and times of elementary Back to School Nights. It provides a great opportunity to tour the building and meet staff.

We want your child to enjoy their years of school and gain a well-rounded, exceptional education that will lead to postsecondary success. Also, we invite you to join us in wearing green each Friday to show school and community spirit. After all, Green is Magic!
