OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego City School District shuffled some administrators at Tuesday’s meeting
Dean Goewey, the former Riley Elementary principal, settled his sexual harassment case with the school district late last month. As part of the settlement, the district was to appoint him to a principal position.
Dr. Randy Richards was named principal at Riley last year.
Goewey was appointed principal of Minetto Elementary, according to Bill Crist, the district’s personal manager (and currently acting superintendent).
That left Roseann Bayne’s future with the district up in the air.
Bayne, the former Williamstown principal, had been hired in June as principal of Minetto Elementary.
At its meeting Tuesday night, the board of education appointed Bayne as the assistant principal for OMS.
Her starting salary will be $80,628.
In other recent principal moves, Bonnie Finnerty was appointed principal at OMS to fill the vacancy left by the departure of Connie Evelyn.
And, OMS assistant principal Tim Moon stepped down to take another position within the district.
The district had planned to leave Moon’s former position vacant, as a cost-saving measure.
Also Tuesday night, the board approved extending Crist’s appointment as acting superintendent through Sept. 2, the date of the board’s next meeting.
The board also voted to retain the services of an outside firm to assist with the search for a new superintendent of schools.
Crist has been filling in since David Fischer stepped down at the end of June to take a superintendent’s position out of state.
