A Message from the Board of Education President - re: Interim Superintendent
Dear Students, Staff, Parents and Caregivers, and Community Members,
As a follow up to my message to you on May 27, 2022, on behalf of the Board of Education, I am pleased to announce that Mr. Daniel Connor has been selected as the interim Superintendent of Schools. Mr. Connor has a wealth of public school experience and has served as a Superintendent in various districts since 1987. He most recently served as Superintendent of the Goshen Central School District in Orange County from 2009 through 2021, and is currently serving as an interim elementary principal in the Greater Amsterdam School District.
Mr. Connor will begin his transition work with the Board and Mr. Slentz on Tuesday, July 5th and will be introducing himself to all of you in the coming days. Conducting an interim search without delay and selecting a candidate to move forward with as soon as possible, ensures that Mr. Connor will be fully engaged with the District and all of you as planning and preparations are in motion for a successful 2022-2023 school year. The Board is committed to having as much stability, continuity, and progress on our District goals as possible during this transition period to a new permanent Superintendent.
The Board continues to discuss our next steps in determining the best path forward in the selection of the next permanent Superintendent of Schools and we will continue to keep you updated on our progress.
