About Us

In 1954, several Superintendents came together to form what is now the Suffolk County School Superintendents Association, an organization dedicated to supporting Superintendents and students across Suffolk County. The primary goals of building camaraderie and improving communication among superintendents were the cornerstones of their efforts, and are as relevant today as they were more than 60 years ago.

The website you are viewing is part of the natural progression in SCSSA’s role as a trendsetting organization of Superintendents across New York State. With instant communication a necessity and support of one’s colleagues a must, the Association has embarked on an effort to create a website that links Superintendents both locally and worldwide. We have endeavored to make the site easy to navigate and truly informational. We hope you visit our site often, and we welcome your suggestions and feedback as we continue to stay true to our founding goals.
