Tonawanda News — The job position for the position of the Ken-Ton superintendent has been posted, and the district has launched a page on its website to provide information to residents.
“We are moving quickly as it takes a great deal of time and our goal is to have a new superintendent in place by Aug. 1,” school board President Bob Dana said in an email.
A survey is posted on the website for residents to provide their input on the search. Paper copies of the survey are also available in the school offices. Completed services may be sent to Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources Stephen Bovino.
The posting will specifies salary range of $160,000 to $190,000. The district has hired the University of Rochester’s Warner Center for Professional Development and Education Reform to assist the district in the search for a new superintendent.
The advertisement will be up until early April, and the first interviews will take place at the end of April, the timeline states.
Finalists will be chosen in early May, and finalist interviews will take place a few weeks later. The preferred candidate will be chosen in late May and contract negotiations will then begin. The new superintendent will be appointed in June and begin work on Aug. 1.
Superintendent Mark Mondanaro announced on Jan. 16 that he will retire at the end of July. He has led the district for seven years, through declining state aid and enrollment, as well as the start of the consolidation project.
