Superintendent hopefuls down to five

CHATEAUGAY — A field of 30 applicants has been reduced to five for an initial round of interviews for the Chateaugay Central School District’s superintendent job.

Steven Shafer, superintendent of the Franklin-Essex-Hamilton Board of Cooperative Educational Services, said the Chateaugay Central School Board reviewed the 30 applications on Aug. 12 and reduced the number of possible candidates to 15.

During a second session on Aug. 19, the board selected five people to interview.

Shafer said board members will hold the first series of interviews on either Sept. 9 or 10.

The district is seeking to fill the superintendent position left vacant when Dale Breault left Chateaugay Central in July after 18 years as a teacher and administrator.

He took the post of assistant director of the Northeastern Regional Information Center in Plattsburgh.

Wayne Walbridge, a former Malone Central School District superintendent who retired for the second time there in June, is the interim superintendent at Chateaugay until a new person is hired.

The annual salary for the Chateaugay position is advertised between $95,000 and $110,000.

The district hopes to have someone in place by Nov. 1, Shafer said.

  • Why do wolves howl?

    Of all the myths that dog the wolf, none is more widely accepted than the idea that wolves howl at the moon. Images of wolves with their heads upturned, singing at the night sky, are as unquestioned as a goldfish's three-second memory or a dog's color-blindness (both also myths).
