A Message from the Longwood Board of Education President 

At the October 1 Board of Education meeting, Dr. Lonergan formally announced his plans to retire as Superintendent of Schools, effective June 30, 2021. We want to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Lonergan for his 18 years of service to the Longwood Central School District.

As members of the Board of Education, we understand the importance of choosing a new Superintendent who exemplifies the standards and values we hold as a district and who is prepared to lead our district forward. To that end, we have chosen Eastern Suffolk BOCES to facilitate the search process for the next Superintendent of Schools with the Board of Education and community.

We are committed to a thorough, transparent, and inclusive process. Given the critical importance of this decision, we will be seeking insights and opinions from the community, parents, staff, and students on the characteristics and qualifications desired in our next Superintendent as well as priorities for short and long-term issues this individual will need to address.

In the coming weeks, we will make available an online survey to solicit input from all stakeholders. Based on the community’s input and priorities, the Board will seek and fully vet all qualified candidates.

In closing, the Board of Education would once again like to thank Dr. Lonergan for his dedication to the children, staff, and families of our district.

We look forward to working collaboratively on a successful search for a new leader.
