The Greater Amsterdam School District Board of Education has officially launched the search for a new superintendent of schools.

The posting can be found at: The deadline to apply for the position is Feb. 20, 2020.

The position is also posted on several education job boards with professional organizations including the School Administrators Association of New York State (SAANYS), the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA), the New York State Council of School Superintendents (NYSCOSS), and OLAS, the On-line Application System for Educators, which serves school districts throughout the state.

HFM BOCES District Superintendent Dr. David Ziskin is working with the GASD Board of Education as a consultant during the search process. As part of their statutory duties, BOCES district superintendents may be asked by component school boards to act as consultants during superintendent searches.
