The Four County School Boards Association would like to extend a very special thank you to Dr. Jason Andrews, Superintendent of the Windsor Central School District and

New York State’s 2019 Superintendent of the Year

for his humorous and thought-provoking presentation at our November General Membership dinner meeting at Club 86.  Attendees described the presentation as “uplifting”, “motivational”, and “bringing focus to our purpose.”  The Association greatly appreciates Dr. Andrews traveling upstate to spend the evening with us.


A video of his presentation can be found on our Member's Only Page.
