Superintendent's Message

James Anastasio: Superintendent of Schools

Welcome to the Augusta School Department.  I am thrilled to be part of this community and School Department and looking forward to another school year.  I want to thank you for visiting our website; our updated site is filled with useful information for anyone interested in learning more about our schools.  Each page is designed to give the viewer a look into who we are, what we believe in, and the opportunities available for students. 

The School Department has high expectations for our staff and students and will continue to do everything possible, within the resources available, to provide a meaningful education for students and a positive experience for parents, guardians, and other patrons. We are committed to excellence and assisting students attain their potential as they proceed through their school years. 

The School Department is proud to offer a wide variety of curricular offerings and co-curricular experiences that create the opportunity for students to succeed academically and expand their interests.  I believe it is imperative that parents become fully involved in the education of their children. I know it is difficult, but supporting your student(s) is essential to their success.  It is important that you celebrate their achievements and guide them as they progress through the school system and life. 

I hope the information you find on our website demonstrates that the School Department is focusing on the success of all students through assisting and supporting them, their families, individual schools, and the Augusta community.
