Mrs. Andrea S. Kersten - Superintendent of Schools

I am profoundly grateful to the School Board for the honor of being selected as the Superintendent of Schools. The trust placed in me to lead our schools and impact the lives of our students is a responsibility I accept with the deepest dedication and enthusiasm. Together, I look forward to forging a path of innovation, belonging, and academic excellence for all our students and the wider school community.

Since joining the district back in Spring 2021 as Director of Curriculum and Instruction, I have had the opportunity to work closely with fellow administrators, as well as our faculty and many staff members. I’ve also had the pleasure of getting to know our Board of Education members who dedicate themselves on behalf of all stakeholders as we continue to pursue excellence in every facet of our district. The opportunities to meet many community members who share my enthusiasm for our students and all that our school embodies within the community, has been a source of additional enjoyment; it is gratifying to have so many individuals and civic organizations supporting our efforts!

One of the primary focuses is to continue our execution of the district’s Strategic Plan. This roadmap is designed to support academic excellence, student well-being, and improve upon our district’s communication practices. We are also initiating a significant capital improvement project aimed at enhancing our school facilities. Please watch for regular updates from our website.

Transparent and frequent communication is an essential component of our path forward. Updates are provided through our district website, newsletters, community meetings, and our district Facebook page which is We value and depend on your insights, feedback, and active participation. Your engagement is critical in helping us make informed decisions that ultimately benefit our students.

The success of any educational institution lies not only in its academic offerings and infrastructure but also in the partnerships it builds within the community it serves. Our future is filled with opportunity and promise. Together, let's harness these opportunities and create a learning environment that empowers every student in our district. I look forward to all we can achieve together, in partnership and in service, to the students of ACS.

Thank you for your ongoing support and trust. Please feel free to reach me at (716)542-5006 or

Warm regards,

Andrea S. Kersten
Superintendent of Schools
