Tonawanda News — Whoever receives the assignment from BOCES would serve two days per week for the remainder of the school year.

“The way we figure, once we hire a superintendent, we’ll let that person hire someone they can work with,” Sabo said of replacing Dumphrey.

Dumphrey’s departure does leave the district in a bit of a lurch, heading into prime time for his position. Districts across the state are busy preparing budgets for the upcoming school year and Niagara-Wheatfield is no different.

But Sabo said the budget is almost ready to go and should require minimal work outside of figuring out what needs to be cut.

“All of the leg work is basically done,” he said. “The next piece is the cuts. It’s just a matter of figuring out the calculations.”
