New Rochelle Educator with Deep Experience and Credentials Selected as Next Superintendent of the City School District of New Rochelle

Dr. Corey W. Reynolds

Dr. Corey W. Reynolds has been unanimously selected by the New Rochelle Board of Education as the next Superintendent of the City School District of New Rochelle.

The Board unanimously approved a three-year contract with Dr. Reynolds during a meeting last night at Jefferson Elementary School. Dr. Reynolds is currently the Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources/Chief Human Resources Officer. He will start in his role on July 1, 2023, after the departure of current Superintendent Jonathan Raymond. Raymond is leaving the school district at the end of the school year due to family considerations.


“We are excited about Dr. Reynolds’ vision for collaborating with our children, community and talented teachers and staff to ensure every student is nurtured and supported,” said Board of Education President William Iannuzzi. “The promotion of Dr. Reynolds enables our school district to maintain continuity and stability, and it provides ample time for Dr. Reynolds to be introduced into the role by current Superintendent Jonathan Raymond.”


Reynolds was gratified by the opportunity to serve New Rochelle and thanked the Board of Education for its faith in his abilities to support students, families, and community.


“We will make every decision with the best interests of our children in mind,” Dr. Reynolds said. “I am committed to supporting the whole child to ensure readiness for careers and life. I look forward to advancing the numerous advancements implemented by Mr. Raymond while leading our school district into the next frontier of achievement and innovation.”


Dr. Reynolds will continue his Human Resources responsibilities in upcoming months, but also will be a vital voice in school district strategies as he welcomes a transfer of knowledge from Raymond. Dr. Reynolds also will allocate time to meet with stakeholders and community leaders. When Dr. Reynolds becomes Superintendent on July 1, 2023, his salary will be $290,000.


Reynolds offers well-rounded experience working in Westchester County school districts. He started as an elementary school teacher in the Mount Vernon and Greenburgh Central School District schools, and then rose through administrative ranks with the goal of helping students beyond the walls of his own classroom. Before joining the City School District of New Rochelle, he served as the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Personnel in Greenburgh. He also has held the position of Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources in the White Plains School District; was Assistant Superintendent for Supervision, Curriculum and Instruction for Elementary Administration in the Yonkers Public Schools; and was an Assistant Principal and Principal for a decade in the Ossining Union Free School District.
