The East Islip Board of Education will hold its annual reorganization meeting on Thursday, July 9 at 9 p.m., preceded by an executive session at 7:30 p.m.
All community members are invited
At a special meeting on Tuesday, June 9, the East Islip Board of Education appointed John V. Dolan as the district’s new superintendent of schools, effective July 1, 2015.
“We are very happy to welcome a person of John's caliber to our district,” said Board President Steven Behan. “He is a true academic leader, and we are confident he will serve our district well as its new superintendent. His love of education will continue to push our district toward achieving and maintaining the high academic standards we have come to expect.”
“I want to thank the Board of Education for this opportunity,” said Dolan. “I look forward to a long and enriching relationship with the Board of Education, parents, community and staff on our shared goal of supporting and guiding all of our students. I am committed to building upon the success of East Islip by helping every child succeed to the highest level.”
Dolan has been an educator for almost 20 years, the past five of which he has worked as a principal at Sachem North High School in the Sachem Central School District. During his time in Sachem, Dolan helped to create and implement many different programs to enhance students' education. He successfully implemented the character education program “Manners Matter,” which helped reduce suspension and disciplinary referrals. He implemented teacher website programs to facilitate a better school-to-home connection, as well as revamped the master scheduling process to be more student-centered and efficient based on student needs.
Prior to his administrative experience in Sachem, Dolan began his educational career in the Patchogue-Medford School District, where he taught history and economics before becoming the dean of students. He then took a job as the assistant principal at a middle school in Smithtown before being promoted to principal at Smithtown West.
Dolan holds an MBA from Adelphi University and administrative certifications from Dowling College.
His contract will run through June 30, 2018.
