TSCD business director retires

Tonawanda City School District Business Director Stephen Perry has retired pending the approval of the board, Superintendent James Newton said Tuesday.

The board hired Perry in June 2012, and he began working July 16, 2012 with a salary of $96,000. His contract’s term was set to expire on June 30, 2015.

Perry submitted his retirement papers last week, Newton said. His retirement will not be effective until the board signs off on it at its next meeting, which is set for Tuesday. 

”His effective retirement date is Dec. 14. He has vacation days,” Newton said in an email. 

Newton said Perry will still come in to the district for necessary meetings and work. 

A job posting specifying a “competitive salary” has been published for the position. Newton said the board may choose an interim director until the position is filled.

”We will be interviewing candidates in the next few weeks until someone is on board,” Newton said.
