Administrator Search Input
January 12, 2018
Dear Pearl River School Community,
At the last Board of Education meeting, the Board acted on a number of retirements including Sue Wheeler, our Deputy Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, and Quinton Van Wynen, our Director of Operations. As you know, we are committed to find the highest quality candidates for all positions that we fill in the district. Our search process will begin immediately for these two very important positions.
We will be following a similar search process for these positions as we did for filling the last two administrative positions. The first step is to hear from you, what qualities you feel the candidates should possess for these central office positions. To that end, Marco Pochintesta and I will be at the District Administration Building on Wednesday evening, January 17th, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM, to meet with any parent or community member who would like to provide input.
If you are unable to attend this meeting, you can still provide input through a survey anytime between today and Wednesday night. The link can be found below and will be posted on our website homepage at www.pearlriver.org.
The information provided will help us determine the criteria and qualities that we will look for in an Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction and in a school business official. Advertising for the positions will begin soon and will reflect the input received from our meetings with the stakeholder groups. Our goal is to appoint both of these positions in the spring so that they can be in place on July 1st.
Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Community Services
