Irvington Wants Feedback in Superintendent Search

IRVINGTON, N.Y. – School board officials in Irvington have begun the community-involvement portion of their search for a new superintendent.

The new superintendent will replace Interim Superintendent Robert Roelle, who was hired when Kathleen Matusiak suddenly retired after seven years on the job. Roelle has agreed to stay for one year while the Board of Education conducts its search.

Irvington has hired consultants Hazard, Young, Attea and Associates to aid them in the superintendent search. School board officials hope to hire a permanent replacement by February 2012 to begin working on or before July 1, 2012.

The board has scheduled three public meetings during the third week of November. These “open forums” will be used to gather information on what the community would like to see in a new superintendent, the school district announced Monday. The forums will be moderated by the search consultants.

The schedule of forums is:

Sunday, November 13 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Dows Lane Multi-Purpose Room

Monday, November 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Dows Lane Multi-Purpose Room

Tuesday, November 15 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the Dows Lane Multi-Purpose Room.

The board is also asking community members to complete an online survey on the desired characteristics they want in a new superintendent.

The school district said Monday it was expected to share the outcome of the forums and survey in December.
