LAKE HUNTINGTON, NY – On November 4, Stephen A. Walker, superintendent of schools at Sullivan West, announced to the community via a letter posted on Twitter that after about three-and-a-half years at the helm, he was moving on in early January 2022 to lead the Croton-Harmon School District in Westchester County.
In the letter, Walker stated that, “in addition to providing new challenges to my growth professionally, working in Croton-Harmon will allow me to be closer to my family, an opportunity that is significantly important to me.”
Under his watch, Sullivan West has implemented several new programs: new facilitator positions in technology and instruction, Spanish language instruction at the elementary school, a new middle school program, and added support for the business office and technology departments.
“We celebrated the accomplishments of our outstanding staff members through the Sullivan West Standout program, and introduced social media to celebrate the successes of our Bulldog students in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and on the stage,” he said.
In addition, a new learning platform, Seesaw, was established, plus the Student of the Month award, to honor kids at the elementary level, and RULER, a social-emotional learning approach to personal wellness.
“I have seen it written that ‘our fingerprints don’t fade from those whose lives we touch,’” said Walker, adding, “I will always be indebted to you for your kindness and support, and inspired by the way that you care for our schools and our Bulldogs.”
Walker came to the Home of the Bulldogs in 2018 after serving as deputy superintendent of school at Suffern Central School District in Orange County.
In closing his letter to the community, Walker said, “I will always carry this time we spent together with me, and will make sure to keep track of the wonderful things that will continue to occur in these great schools.”
