The Warwick Valley Central School District Board of Education will appoint WVHS Associate Principal Marguerite Fusco as the new Principal at Warwick Valley High School, as Dr. Larry Washington takes on the role of Superintendent at the Washingtonville Central School District.
Ms. Fusco graduated from Manhattan College with a bachelor degree in mathematics and a minor in education. She received a master’s degree in secondary mathematics education from the City College of New York and a second master’s degree in Educational Administration from the College of New Rochelle. In addition, she has School District Administrator and Mathematics Gr. 7-12 certifications.
Ms. Fusco began her career in education as a science and mathematics teacher in the Bronx. After four years, she moved her career to Rockland County, where she taught mathematics for nineteen years and served as the standardized testing coordinator at Ramapo and Suffern High Schools. She served as the school treasurer and comptroller for student activity funds for nine years at Suffern High School.
In July 2015, Ms. Fusco came to Warwick Valley High School to be an Associate Principal. She has coordinated the administration of Regents exams, developed the master schedule, overseen the student activity funds, offered the club fair and electives fair annually to students, and served on district committees that focused on curriculum development and attendance policies.
While at WVHS, Ms. Fusco has taken on many leadership roles and responsibilities, and has been instrumental in strengthening the relationship between administration and faculty.
“My goals are to continue on the successful path the high school is on,” says Ms. Fusco, “and to maintain consistency, while working to improve and grow as a school community.”
