Announcement from the Superintendent

June 18, 2019


Dear Lake George Faculty/Staff and Community Members,


I am writing to inform you of an upcoming change in our leadership team in the very near future. After a great deal of thoughtful reflection on the past and the future at LGCSD, School Business Manager Mrs. Kate DuBois has decided to retire from LGCSD; her last day will be July 31, 2019. She will then transition her expertise to support the Whitehall CSD as they move through a time of transition in their business office with many exciting changes and challenges on the horizon. She was appointed as the School Business official at Whitehall CSD on Monday,  June 17, 2019.


During her 11 years at LGCSD, Mrs. DuBois made countless decisions focused on what is best for our students, faculty/staff and the greater community that will serve as a strong foundation for years to come. She has been an invaluable resource and student advocate during her time at LGCSD: her knowledge and expertise in school business management is unparalleled. In her time at LGCSD, she has successfully designed and implemented Capital Projects, multiple annual school budgets, numerous contract negotiations, and served as an active member of the shared decision making body that created our first strategic plan to include LGCSD Mission, Vision and Values.  


Mrs. Kate Dubois has been a valued member of our Leadership Team and our school community. I realize we have extremely big shoes to fill as we look to find qualified applicants for this leadership position in the future. Therefore, the District is in the process of canvassing a small pool of qualified business official candidates for a short-term, interim period. The interim position will allow LGCSD to cast a wide net to recruit and interview for this position in the coming months, while also keeping up with the responsibilities associated with day to day needs in the business office as well as attend to the upcoming Capital Project deadlines.  


On behalf of the entire Lake George CSD, I want to extend our deepest gratitude and appreciation to Mrs. Kate DuBois for her unwavering commitment to our central mission, our students. Kate has remained committed to creating and sustaining a system that supports our district’s long history of excellence with a priority on fiscal responsibility in the present and far into the future.


Please join me in congratulating Kate on her retirement and wishing her the very best as she transitions to a new beginning at Whitehall CSD.


And Suddenly You Know...It’s Time to start Something New and Trust the Magic of New Beginnings…
