The District is proud to announce that District Director of Student Data Services and Technology Daniel Rose was selected by Western Suffolk BOCES Model Schools Program 2019-2020 for the Administrator of the Year Award.

Mr. Rose has been with the district for more than 10 years. He consistently and successfully engages stakeholders by promoting technological solutions throughout the district. With his yeoman’s work ethic and get-it-done attitude, Mr. Rose is responsible for many technology related achievements in the last few years.

He values learning and he has consistently embraced initiatives that require his hands-on leadership, including the adoption of Google Chromebooks throughout the district with a 1:1 model at the North Babylon High School and championing its expansion to the Robert Moses Middle School. He has developed the capacity by arranging faculty trips to other schools and even Google’s NYC headquarters. He directly coordinates the delivery of high-quality professional development workshops to faculty on topics ranging from Google Drive, eSchooldata, Google Classroom and Smartboards.

Mr. Rose also leads the School Administrators Bargaining Unit and he has run the Alternative High School, but his leadership in the area of technology requires so many behind-the-scenes activities that require immense amounts of attention to detail, collaboration and organization. He develops budgets and coordinates ordering and purchasing, while simultaneously looking for ways to improve systems and learning.

In the last year under his leadership, the district received new digital copy machines and the district’s router/switches were also upgraded. Additionally, every classroom received training on how to use the new Smartboards.

The District congratulates Mr. Rose on this achievement and applauds his dedication he puts toward his position.
