Welcome to the Chappaqua Central School District! 

Christine AckermanI am honored to serve as Superintendent. You will find in Chappaqua that the instructional opportunities offered to the children in this community, and the support afforded to this school system by its families, is inspiring.  We all work meticulously to continue to provide the highest quality education for every student in our District.

We are guided by the Board of Education’s strategic questions as we weave these inquiries into every meaningful discussion concerning our academic and social program. In Chappaqua, we believe we need to design and engage our students in authentic, rigorous tasks that have real-world application. That we must allow students to have a choice in what and how they learn. We strive to cultivate citizens who value and support social justice as they navigate our complex societal climate.

We also support the need to evolve and expand opportunities for enrichment for students at all levels, even in fiscally challenging times. This progression not only occurs in the delivery of instruction but in the spaces in which it happens as well. Our community’s recent commitment to redesign learning areas in all schools has charged the administration, faculty, and staff to rethink classroom configuration practices for the ever-evolving 21st-century student.  We look forward to partnering with our community and national experts as we continue to be at the forefront innovation.

I continue to find myself to be deeply privileged to work in one of the most distinguished school systems in the country. 

 Warmest Regards,

Christine Ackerman, Ph.D.
