The Schenectady City School District Board of Education is seeking an experienced school leader with a focus on equity, inclusion, excellence in teaching and learning, engagement and efficiency. The next superintendent must work to ensure that all students, regardless of race or economics graduate ready to achieve their college, career and life aspirations through equitable access to programs, resources and high-quality instruction.
The Board is working with the Capital Region BOCES central administrative staff to conduct the superintendent search, a process that incorporates community and district staff involvement. More than 335 members of the Schenectady community participated in an online survey and focus groups to identify the strengths and areas for improvement in the school district and the leadership attributes for a successful superintendent. The feedback from the many students, teachers, support staff, administrators, parents and community leaders informed these qualifications. The new superintendent is expected to begin duties in January 2021.
The Board seeks to implement a smooth and seamless transition for the administrative leadership of the district. We appreciate your interest in our schools.
