Superintendent Mary Anne DobmeierI would like to take this opportunity to say I am honored and very excited to be your next Superintendent of Schools. The Indian River Central School District is one of the finest school districts in the north country, state, and—dare I say—nation. If there is one thing that I have learned in my 23 years here thus far, it is that there is a tradition of excellence that exists due to the wonderful people of our community and the hard work of our students, faculty, and staff.

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. First and foremost, I am a wife and mother. My husband Ray and I have one adult daughter who is a graduate of Indian River, and she just graduated with her bachelor’s degree. Next year, she will be finishing her master’s degree and will be entering the world of work. I share this with you this because my experiences as a parent in this District have helped shape me as an educator and a leader.

One of my core beliefs is the provision of a quality and comprehensive education for all students. Indian River is known not only for its academic excellence, athletic and extracurricular programs, but also for the positive and healthy relationships between faculty, staff, and students. I take it seriously that you have entrusted the young people of this community to our care, and I expect our excellent faculty and staff to give their best every day.

My mission as your Superintendent is also my passion, and it is the reason I do what I do, which is to continue to maintain and facilitate a rigorous teaching and learning environment that provides every student with a sense of belonging, while helping students to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially. It is critical to every student's success that they graduate from high school with the skills necessary to pursue and achieve their goals and dreams.

Finally, I want to congratulate Mr. James Kettrick for his 12 years of exemplary leadership of the Indian River Central School District and his 41 years as an educator at Indian River. I wish him the very best in his retirement.
