The Levittown Public Schools is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Susan Farber as the new director of pupil services. She will advance from her six-year position as the district's assistant director of special education, effective July 1.
Prior to joining the Levittown Public Schools, Dr. Farber, a Hewlett resident, served as a psychologist and the supervisor of pupil personnel services in the Lawrence Union Free School District.

"The Levittown School District has a vast array of special education programs and supports. My goal would be to continue to develop these wonderful programs so that our students can gain the skills necessary to meet with success," said Dr. Farber. "Parents and family, as well as teachers and administrators, play an important role in helping to educate our children and I see myself as a partner with all of these groups in creating a successful learning experience for every student. I am passionate about education and eager to continue my professional career in Levittown."
