Search launched for superintendent

The Board of Education’s goal is to have the next superintendent in place by summer.

The Fort Plain Central School District Board of Education has officially launched the search for a new superintendent of schools.

The position is now posted on several education job boards with professional organizations including the School Administrators Association of New York State (SAANYS), the New York State Council of School Superintendents (NYSCOSS), the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) and OLAS, the On-line Application System for Educators, which serves school districts throughout the state.

The posting can also be found at:

HFM BOCES District Superintendent David Ziskin, the former Fort Plain superintendent, is working with the Fort Plain Board of Education as a consultant during the search process. As part of their statutory duties, BOCES district superintendents may be asked by component school boards to act as consultants during superintendent searches. Dr. Ziskin will work with the board to create recruitment material and assist with the development of selection criteria and a process for interviews.

The deadline to apply for the position is Jan. 30, 2020. The Board of Education’s goal is to have the next superintendent in place by summer.

The Fort Plain Board of Education is seeking a new district leader to replace Ziskin, who left the district in July to assume the district superintendent’s position at BOCES. Fort Plain is currently under the direction of Interim Superintendent Kathy Dougherty.
