Dear Seaford School District Residents,

The coming of spring finds us deep in the planning for the 2017-2018 Seaford School District budget. Limited state aid revenues and the tax levy cap will lead us to planning a balanced budget for our voters that remains within the tax cap and preserves all of our current programs, with a few advancements. The Board of Education and administration encourage all interested residents to join us at our March and April Board meetings as we place the final touches on the budget plan. These meetings are scheduled for March 16, April 6 and April 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Manor School.  This year’s Budget Hearing is scheduled for Thursday, May 4 in the high school auditorium at 7:30 p.m., and the budget and trustee vote will be on Tuesday, May 16, with voting in the elementary schools from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. 


Congratulations to Dr. Adele Pecora who was selected as the next Superintendent for the Seaford School District! At the March 2 Board of Education meeting, Dr. Pecora was appointed to the position which will begin on July 1, 2017. Dr. Pecora brings a wealth of experience to the position and is currently the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum in the Commack School District. We will all be working closely with her for an effective transfer of leadership to start the next school year.


I am happy to announce the valedictorian and salutatorian for the Class of 2017. Our valedictorian, Sarah Umstadt, and our salutatorian, Evan Groder have made the most of their high school experiences, challenging themselves with the highest coursework we offer while staying active with extra-curricular activities. Congratulations to these outstanding young adults!


The District, as usual, is a busy and vibrant place. The high school band recently returned from a successful trip to Hawaii and high school foreign language students anxiously await their April trip to Europe. The high school Drama Club performances of Seussical were inspired and memorable. In athletics we have celebrated the achievements of three County Championship teams: Girls Varsity Volleyball, Varsity Cheerleading, and Boys Varsity Football. Congratulations to all of our outstanding student athletes and coaches. Throughout the District we are carrying out our academic mission with energy and enthusiasm as we work to inspire and challenge all of our students to their greatest heights.


At long last the construction of the Harbor School Access Road is set to begin this spring. Thank you to all Seaford residents and our elected officials who worked to make this long needed project a reality.


We look forward to concluding this school year on a strong note. Your support of our students and the School District help to make Seaford a great place to live and to grow up! I look forward to seeing you at future District events which will be numerous this spring!

Yours in Seaford Pride,


Brian L. Conboy

Superintendent of Schools
