FULTON – After completing 2 full terms (2005-2011) and taking a year off, Dan Pawlewicz has decided to put his hat back in the ring for another run on the Fulton City School District’s Board of Education.
Pawlewicz, 40, a life time resident of the Fulton City School District will be one of three candidates on the May 15th ballot running for two open seats.
Pawlewicz resides on County Route 45 in the Town of Palermo with his wife Julie and their 4 daughters; Alexis, Erica, Olivia and Abigail.
Raised and educated in Fulton, Pawlewicz graduated from G. Ray Bodley in 1989 and from St. Lawrence University in 1993 and earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from SUNY Oswego in 1999.
A Physical Education teacher and coach for the Hannibal Central School district for 17 years, he has also taught a six-week Adaptive Physical Education Program for Oswego County BOCES for the past 18 summers.
In 2005, Pawlewicz was elected for his first term as BOE member where he participated on the FCSD Audit and Budget Committees, Board liaison with Athletics, Lanigan Elementary Site Based Team and Fairgrieve Elementary Site Based Team.
In 2008, Pawlewicz was elected to his second term as BOE member where he participated on the FCSD Budget and Communication Committees, Granby Elementary Site Based Team, Volney Site Based Team and BOE Clerk.
When asked why he was running for BOE again, Pawlewicz replied, “because I’m passionate about our community, our schools, and our future.”
Pawlewicz explains that his year away from the BOE has been very refreshing. “It’s like a challenging jig saw puzzle, sometimes it’s beneficial to walk away from the table and regroup, to take a break. I’m ready to get back to work.”
