NCCS launches superintendent search

---- — CHAMPLAIN — Northeastern Clinton Central School has begun the preliminary stages of its search for a new district leader.

“The Board of Education is in the process of compiling information to be put into a brochure that will be used as an invitation for candidates to apply for the (post of) superintendent of NCCS,” School Board President Donna Boumil told the Press-Republican in an email.

The district, she added, anticipates finalizing a salary range for the position and list of the qualities it wishes to see in potential candidates at the beginning of next month.

Assisting the board with the process is former Champlain Valley Educational Services Superintendent Craig King; however, King’s successor at CVES, Dr. Mark Davey, will soon take over as the search consultant. 

The board plans to meet with Davey on Tuesday, Oct. 1, to review the final brochure and application, formulate board interview questions and discuss the opportunity for community input, as well as the format of a stakeholder committee for the search. 

The meeting will be open to the public. 

NCCS then plans to advertise the vacancy statewide in November.

Boumil said a more detailed timeline for the search will likely be finalized at the October meeting.

The person chosen to be the next NCCS superintendent will succeed Peter Turner, who, after five years heading the district, resigned in June 2012 to accept the post of superintendent of Carthage Central School District in Jefferson County.

Upon Turner’s departure, Gerald Blair was appointed NCCS interim superintendent and has agreed to continue in that role until the end of the upcoming school year.
