To receive tenure in the Locust Valley Central School District, faculty members must prove that their educational practices are making a difference for students, that they can collaborate with their colleagues and that they are dedicated to growing and learning. They must be among the best in their field to serve the children of the community.

Seven LVCSD faculty members were honored by the Board of Education on Oct. 19 for achieving this milestone: Erica Caiati Reilly, Ashley Cannone Gruter, Melissa Caravello, Lisa Czerniecki, Kevin Gabrysiak, Rachel McShane and Stephanie Scavelli. 

High School Principal Dr. Kieran J. McGuire and Middle School Principal H. Thomas Hogan presented the tenure recipients and described the ways in which they are impacting affecting the student population. They all share a gift for connecting with students and offer support to the administration, other faculty members and parents. 

The Board of Education congratulates the tenure recipients and looks forward to recognizing their successes for many years to come.
