GLOVERSVILLE-Gloversville Enlarged School District Superintendent Michael Vanyo announced the district is looking for a new middle school principal after the departure of former Principal James Christopher.
Vanyo said an open forum is scheduled for Oct. 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the middle school library to allow parents to "express the qualities and characteristics they desire in the next principal."
The district also is seeking volunteers to serve on a search committee, which will be composed of parents, teachers, administrators, staff members and members of the community. The committee will screen applicants and refer the final candidates to the superintendent for his consideration.
Members of the committee need to be able to attend two evening meetings on Oct. 30 and Nov. 1 to screen candidates and conduct preliminary interviews, a news release said.
"We are encouraging that anyone that wants to be involved in the process to let us know," Vanyo said in the release.
Anyone interested in serving on the search committee can call the superintendent's office at 775-5791.
The open principal position has been listed on the job search site Olasjobs.org. The application period closes Monday.
According to the release, Christopher worked at the school for five years. He left to take a position with the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex Board of Cooperative Educational Services.
