Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Chief School Administrator of the Burch Charter School of Excellence. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! I have been dedicated to the field of education for 19 years. I have worked with a variety of students ranging in age from Pre-Kindergarten through and including college. My most recent administrative experience was in Syracuse, New York where I served as a Principal in a K-8 charter school. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Burch Charter School of Excellence and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.
Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by BCSE by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners. We will focus on developing the whole student, New Jersey Student Learning Standards skills, the use of data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that we can continue to increase all the students' achievement.
All of us at Burch Charter School of Excellence are eager and excited to continue what promises to be the best year ever. We will continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your Chief School Administrator, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My is door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.
I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Burch Charter School of Excellence meet their goals and have a successful school year!
Dr. Jeff White
Chief School Administrator
