The district is pleased to announce that Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Timothy Hearney has been appointed Superintendent of the Bayport-Blue Point School District, effective July 10, 2017.

“I am honored and humbled to have been selected to lead an extraordinary staff in the community of Bayport-Blue Point. As a team we will continue to provide our students with the necessary tools, opportunities and support to be successful,” said Dr. Hearney.

Dr. Hearney is no stranger to the district, as he has served as both a principal of Bayport-Blue Point High School and a central office administrator prior to his current role.

During the past nine years, Dr. Hearney cultivated a team that improved the district’s advanced Regents diploma rate 14 percent, doubled Advanced Placement offerings for students and implemented a first-class leadership curriculum. Under his direction, the district has introduced the Teacher College writing initiative in the elementary schools, built a community-based school-to-business partnership and received a Blue Ribbon nomination from the New York State Department of Education.

“This decision was based on the years of high-quality experience, service and outcomes Dr. Hearney has worked to deliver for the Bayport-Blue Point community,” said Bayport-Blue Point Board of Education President Michael Miller. “As the steward of our instructional programs, Dr. Hearney has helped us achieve at the highest levels, he is highly regarded by our staff and our families, and we look forward to him taking the reins in July.”

Dr. Hearney succeeds current Superintendent Dr. Vincent Butera, who has served as the Superintendent of Bayport-Blue Point School District since late 2012.
