Welcome to the Oswego City School District! I am proud and honored to be the Superintendent of this great school district. Few have a greater connection to Oswego and our district than me. I am a graduate of OHS and have had the pleasure of being a teacher, principal, Assistant Superintendent and now Superintendent of Schools. My family is deeply rooted in Oswego and our schools, and my wife and three sons are graduates as well.
One theme of my career has been advocating for others including students with disabilities and those who are the most educationally disadvantaged. This will continue into my tenure as Superintendent as we continue to work to provide equality of opportunity for all children regardless of ability or disability. Fiscal responsibility coupled with the improvement and enhancement of instructional programs will be our mission. Another theme of my career has been resiliency!
This characteristic will be needed by our school community as we move through the next few months and years. The challenges facing our district and community relative to decreasing revenues and increasing costs will require us all to be tough and resilient. We will focus on the quality of our core instructional program as we learn to work and operate smarter. We will create solutions, not buy them!
I look forward to meeting new and old friends at school events, meetings and throughout the community.
Dr. Dean F. Goewey
