Community Welcomes New Superintendent

The Board of Education officially welcomed new Superintendent of Schools Richard Rosakis to the district on Apr. 23 with a special meet-and-greet session following their work/study meeting in the high school library.
Dozens of parents, teachers, community members and school administrators were in attendance and greeted the new superintendent with rousing applause. Mr. Rosakis, currently Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction in the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District, was the final selection from 55 candidates who were considered for the position.  
Prior to serving the Bellmore-Merrick CHSD, Mr. Rozakis worked as principal of North Shore High School in Glen Head, assistant principal of New Hyde Park Memorial High School, and social studies teacher, social studies chairperson and social studies district coordinator in the Sewanhaka Central School District.
“I'm extremely pleased to be joining the Babylon school district," Rosakis said. "I am very much looking forward to working with the administration, teachers, staff and school community to build on Babylon’s many successes and continue to ensure that all of our children are college and career-ready when they leave high school."
