Superintendent's Office

Dear Ballston Spa CSD Community - 

Superintendent Ken Slentz After a very busy summer in which our instructional staff spent a great deal of time learning about learning and our operations staff spent a great deal of time readying our buildings, buses, and grounds, we are excited to welcome you and your children to another school year. In addition to welcoming all of you back, we are also welcoming a number of new families, new employees, new learning opportunities for students and staff, and new support structures for our students. Taken together, we will continue to work diligently to ensure that every Ballston Spa student graduates with a meaningful diploma which in turn allows them a variety of fulfilling pathways to pursue after they leave us. Make no mistake though – this will require a great deal of focused work, strong partnerships, a willingness to try different things than we have done in the past, and consistent communications.

To that end, the district calendar serves as but one means of communication, as does our website (, our quarterly newsletter (The Reader), our social media account (Twitter @BSCSD which links to a number of other accounts within the district), our monthly Updates from the District Office, our community forums on key issues and opportunities, and our periodic emergency/critical incident emails and phone calls. To be sure that you receive all such notices from us, I encourage you to verify your contact information with your child’s school in order to receive electronic messages via our SchoolMessenger notification system from the district or schools throughout the year, as well as emergency and school closing information.

We truly look forward to the 2020-2021 school year and strengthening our partnerships with all of you in service of better outcomes for our kids. Please feel free to contact me at 884-7195 ext. 1310 or I look forward to working with you toward another productive and successful school year.
