From the Superintendent

Welcome to the Office of the Superintendent

Bill Butler
Interim Superintendent of Schools

Summer Greetings!

Let me introduce myself: I’m Bill Butler, and I’m serving as interim superintendent of schools while the School Committee conducts a search for a permanent replacement for Dr. Mary Czajkowski, who recently left Barnstable to become superintendent in Lexington. Before assuming my current position, I served as school attorney in Barnstable for the past 11 years.

Even though June brings the end of school for students and teachers, administrators work year round, closing out the last school year and preparing for the opening of the new school year. This summer we welcome several new administrators to our Barnstable District Leadership Team, including:

  • Karen Cloutier, BWB Principal
  • Nicole Caucci, Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center Principal
  • Kari Morse, Director of Gateway
  • Thomas Tracey, BUES Assistant Principal
  • Robert Donehey, BHS Housemaster
  • Melisa McCarthy-Kraus, BUE Special Education Coordinator
  • Sue West, Science Curriculum Coordinator, Grades 6 - 12
  • Stephanie Markwell, Early Learning Center Special Education Coordinator
  • Laura Gill, K - 5 Music Department Head

Our three-day summer leadership team workshop will take place from August 18 to 20. This is an opportunity for all leaders to discuss the priorities for the 2015-2016 school year, including in particular continued work on the district’s multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) initiative. MTSS provides a framework for school improvement focused on system level change across the classroom, school, and district to meet the academic and non-academic needs of all students, including students with disabilities, English language learners, and students who are academically advanced. This workshop will help to set the tone for the coming school year and develop team building skills that will promote district-wide and school-wide collaboration and communication. We look forward to a productive time together.

We also look forward to the completion and opening of the new Enoch Cobb Early Learning Center located adjacent to Hyannis West Elementary School. This modular building will house the district’s integrated preschool program and will provide the program with a state-of-the-art facility designed to meet the special needs of the children.


Our Vision

The vision of the Barnstable Public Schools is to provide a common, standards-based educational program that will enable EVERY student to achieve rigorous performance standards in order to graduate college and career ready.
