Superintendent Selection Update
 For Immediate Release
Date: 2/25/2015

The Marlboro Central School District is pleased to announce it has identified two finalists in its search for a new Superintendent of Schools.

Mr. Joseph Prisinzano, the Assistant to the Superintendent for Administration, Research, Innovation and Common Core with the Jericho School District will visit the district on March 9. Mr. Michael Brooks, currently the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction with the Cornwall Central School District will visit the district on March 10.  

In the event of school closure due to inclement weather, March 11 has been set aside as a snow date. 


Both finalists were selected by the board after a preliminary round of interviews culled from a candidate pool of 20 applicants.  They will each be given a full day tour of the district during their visits and are scheduled to meet with a variety of focus groups representing the various stakeholders in the group.


The day will begin at Marlboro High School where candidates will be greeted by Interim Superintendent Joseph DiLorenzo. Throughout the day the finalists will meet with district administration, instructional staff, clerical and support staff, buildings and grounds staff, students, parents, and community members all culminating in one final meeting with the Board of Education.


The board has scheduled Executive Sessions the evenings of March 9 and March 10 for the purpose of those final meetings. The board will then deliberate and make a final determination with the intent of having a new Superintendent of Schools in place in time for a July 1, 2015 start date.

A Message regarding Snow Days
State education law requires that schools be in attendance for 180 per year. Our current school calendar calls for 186 days of instruction and 2 teachers’ conference days.  The two conference days may be counted as part of our total attendance for the year.   As a result of inclement weather, the district has used 7 days.  There was an additional day used by the elementary school as a result of a water main break.   This leaves the high school and middle school with 1 remaining day and the elementary school with none.  In the event that we surpass the allotted number of days, the approved make-up days are April 6th, March 30 and 31st. 
A state of emergency will not result in the forgiveness of a school attendance requirement as long as there are available days in the school calendar.
