Oswego City School District Superintedency Two Finalists Set

OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego City School District is moving forward in the search for the next leader of the district.

The Board of Education and the stakeholder committee have finished with the preliminary interview process leaving two candidates for the final interviews with the Board of Education.

The two finalists are Benjamin Halsey and Anita Murphy.

Both candidates come to the final round of interviews with extensive experience in education.

Halsey is currently the Superintendent of North Collins Central School. During his nine-year tenure with the district the expansion of Advanced Placement courses and corresponding honors classes  and a graduation rate of 96.3% with a 40% low wealth population are just a few of the accomplishments he brings with him.

Murphy is currently serving as the Deputy Superintendent of Schools for the City of Rochester.

Prior to her serving in that role she was the Associate Commissioner of Education for Curriculum for the New York State Education Department. As the Deputy Superintendent she is responsible for the implementation of all aspects of the Regents Reform Agenda, including, but not limited to APPR, common core implementation, data driven decision-making and state reporting.

During her tenure there she has standardized a master schedule which increased both teaching time and rigor across all content areas throughout the city.

The search consultant, BOCES District Superintendent Christopher Todd, said, “The board and search committee have interviewed the candidates and the final stage is matching district needs with the skills that each candidate possesses.”

The board is hopeful that a final decision will be made within the next month.

This puts the district well within the timeline to replace Interim Superintendent, Gary Mix, who will leave his post at the close of December.
