Superintendent's Message


James Anastasio: Superintendent of Schools

After twenty nine years as a high school principal, 7.5 at Cony, and over forty years in education, I fully expected to end my career at Cony High School.  I thoroughly enjoyed the role of high school principal and looked forward each and every day to working with an excellent faculty and staff, and a truly outstanding student body.  Who could ask for or want more? 

What an interesting question!  In this case, the answer is me.  The Augusta School Department is filled with dedicated educators who work long and hard every day to provide the best educational opportunities for all students.  They deserve respect and should be supported and recognized.  The community of Augusta has a right to expect that students will have all of the benefits that can be provided by an excellent school system, and the taxpayers need to know that their tax dollars are being spent as efficiently and effectively as possible.  As Superintendent, I have a unique opportunity; an opportunity to utilize my experience, knowledge of education, relationships established in the City of Augusta and the Augusta School Department, to help the school system thrive and to have a positive impact on the future of students and educators.

Accomplishing such lofty goals will require that all members of the educational community work collaboratively with the best interest of students at the forefront of all decision-making.  I will do my best to ensure that students have the best educational opportunities available, to support and recognize the districts outstanding educators, and to responsibly and efficiently utilize all available resources.  I am committed to helping the Augusta School Department be the best it can be.


James N. Anastasio
