Oswego School District Continues Search for New Superintendent

OSWEGO, NY – At this week’s committees and Oswego school board meeting, BOCES District Superintendent Christopher Todd addressed the community members in attendance and noted that the search for a new Oswego City School District Superintendent of Schools was continuing.

He said, “I have been charged to go out and look for an interim. My goal is to go out and look for an interim superintendent to be here at least through the first semester. What that allows me to do, as a search consultant, is to go back out, re-advertise, gather a new pool of candidates for the board and the stakeholders to interview and allow the process not to feel rushed.”

An extensive presentation and discussion focused on the plans for crisis management in the schools.

Dale Currier and Terry Bennett of Oswego County Office for Emergency Preparedness were present and fielded numerous questions from the members of the board.

The county representatives were joined by Oswego City School District Director of Security John Anderson, Oswego City Police Chief Tory DeCaire and BOCES Security Director Mike Sterio were all present and contributed to the discussion.

In regular action the board approved the bond resolution authorizing the purchase of the buses that were approved in the May 21 voting, approved the posting of vacancies, accepted a proposal from Asset Works for a fixed asset inventory and approved a resolution for an agreement between Pemberton Associates and the school district for physical therapy, occupational therapy and related evaluation and consultation services for the special programs area.

The board will conduct the next regular meeting on June 18 at 6 p.m. at the Education Center Board Room.
