This is not the first time she has been honored and we are sure it will not be the last. In March 2016, Dr. Tahira Dupree-Chase, Superintendent of the Greenburgh Central School District, was named among the country’s top 25 Superintendents to Watch in 2015-16 by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA). She was one of only two New York State superintendents recognized by NSPRA.
The Greenburgh Central School District appointed Dr. Tahira Dupree Chase as the permanent Superintendent of Schools for the school system in October 2015. Dr. Chase has served as the interim Superintendent since the Greenburgh Board Of Education fired Superintendent Ronald O. Ross, September 22, 2014.
