FONDA - The Fonda-Fultonville Central School District Board of Education has announced three finalists in its search for a new superintendent of schools.
The candidates are in the final stages of the interview process before the board makes its decision, according to a news release. The new superintendent's appointment will take effect Jan. 1.
The three finalists for the position are as follows:?
- Berneice Brownell, who has served as a superintendent for several school districts in New Jersey and New York state.
From 2001-07, Brownell was head of the Department of Education at Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania.
Most recently, she led the Eldred Central School District in Sullivan County. The Eldred school board terminated her contract in 2010 amid contentious negotiations with faculty, according to a report in a newspaper serving that area.
- Roger Clough has been an administrator with the Massena Central School District in St. Lawrence County since 2002, serving first as its elementary and junior high school principal and currently as superintendent.
He also served the district as an administrative intern and elementary teacher.
- David Halloran has been the Fonda-Fultonville High School principal since 2007. He previously served as the assistant principal at Johnstown High School for two years, and taught social studies at Tamarac and Ballston Spa High Schools.
