Avon, New York, May 29, 2019 – After considering stakeholder input and considerable Board deliberations, the Avon Central School District’s (CSD) Board of Education (BOE), has decided to re-open the search for the Superintendent of Schools position.
Rodney George, President of the Avon Central School District’sBOE, said this is likely the single most important task the board has and intends to continue the search for the best candidate.
“While the qualifications of our candidates were very strong, and we sincerely thank them for their interest, we just did not find the right fit. The planning of this new search is still in progress, it is anticipated that the board will post for the vacancy late summer and/or early fall 2019. As more search details are planned, this information will be posted on the Avon CSD website at avoncsd.org,” George said.
John Brondon, interim Superintendent of Schools for the Avon CSD, has agreed to continue in this role until a new superintendent has been selected.
The anticipated start date for the new Superintendent is on or before January 6, 2020.
Kevin MacDonald, District Superintendent of the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership, who is acting as search consultant, said the Board conducted hours of painstaking deliberations to arrive at this decision they believe will be the best for the Avon CSD.
“We will continue to work together to find the best possible candidate for the Superintendent of Schools for the Avon Central School District,” MacDonald said.
The Genesee Valley Educational Partnership operates as a Board of Cooperative Educational Services offering shared programs and services to 22 component school districts located in Genesee, Wyoming, Livingston and Steuben counties in New York state.
