SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE

 Superintendent Stephen Beovich

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Mount Pleasant Cottage School UFSD and how we can help high needs students reach their full potential. The district is made up of two schools. Mount Pleasant Cottage School primarily serves K-12 students who have emotional disabilities. The Edenwald School serves K-12 students with autism as well as emotional and cognitive disabilities.

The district is committed to the success of every student. We ensure that our students are being delivered a highly rigorous curriculum while providing, through our highly trained staff, the accommodations and support they need to succeed. The dedication to our students has resulted in a consistent increase district-wide in state test scores each of the past five years.

We are dedicated to growing the district’s alternative and vocational programs so that all students are provided expanded opportunities and multiple pathways to achieve success. We are proud to have begun our first New York State-approved CTE program, in Culinary Arts. This program provides the students an opportunity to graduate with an industry credential as well as college credit. Building off this success, we are looking to expand our certified CTE programs and currently offer vocational classes in Cosmetology, Graphic Design and Technology in addition to Culinary Arts. To help all students reach their full potential, we also have a TASC program for students who enter the district with little or no credits past the time their cohort has graduated. The TASC program allows these students to receive an equivalency diploma and still receive the full supports of the school district.

It is extremely important to us that we offer students continued opportunities after 3 p.m. We offer an expansive after-school program with educational and recreational options, including interscholastic sports. We have recently become a My Brother’s Keeper Community. I firmly believe that it is vitally important to provide these programs to our students as we strive to give them a supportive environment where they can experience social and emotional growth through opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.

It is truly a privilege to work with a team of educators who are so dedicated to the success of our students. After one visit to the district, you will see that we have a staff dedicated to the district’s mission statement of Facing Challenges and Achieving Success!
