Gloversville schools launch search for new superintendent

September 14, 2017 | Filed in Top Stories

HFM BOCES District Superintendent Dr. Patrick Michel will assist the Gloversville Enlarged School District Board of Education as it searches for a new superintendent of schools.

The GESD Board of Education is seeking a new district leader to replace Michael Vanyo, who left at the end of the 2016-17 school year to assume the superintendent’s post in the Ichabod Crane Central School District. Gloversville is currently under the direction of Interim Superintendent Robert DeLilli.

As part of their statutory duties, BOCES superintendents may be asked by component school boards to act as a consultant in superintendent searches. The search services will be provided free of charge to Gloversville, beyond the cost of advertising.

Dr. Michel will direct the recruitment process and assist with the development of selection criteria and a process for interviews.

The deadline for candidates to submit applications is Oct. 27. The initial round of interviews is expected to take place the last week of November.

Based on criteria developed by the GESD Board of Education, to be considered, candidates must have previous assistant superintendent, superintendent or other central administration experience. Strong consideration will be given to candidates who are willing to reside in the district.

The job has been posted on job boards with the School Administrators Association of New York State (SAANYS), the New York State Council of School Superintendents (NYSCOSS), the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) and OLAS, the On-line Application System for Educators, which serves school districts throughout the state. Online advertisements have also been posted with Education Week and the New York Times. Click here to view the posting.

DeLilli has agreed to stay on until a new superintendent can begin work.
