Superintendent Search Update

December 11, 2020

A Message From Dr. Ramos, Search Consultant

Dear Newark Community,

On behalf of the Board of Education, I am excited to share that the superintendent vacancy announcement and application have been published. The vacancy announcement and application, along with additional information, can be found at The vacancy announcement was developed with the Board of Education, in alignment with the feedback provided during the information gathering process. I want to thank all of you who participated in providing feedback: 147 participants in facilitated feedback conversations, 420 survey participants (197 District Employees, 155 Parents, 35 Students, 18 Community Members and 15 “Other” category participants). The information gathered was aligned to national leadership standards: Vision, Culture, Instructional Leadership; Operations, Resource and Personnel Management; Board Governance and Policy; Communication and Community Relations; and Ethical Leadership.

The application period will remain open until January 9, 2021. As this is a confidential process, I will be unable to share applicant information. Once the application period has closed, the Board will select those applicants they wish to interview and make their final decision. We are hoping the selection process can be completed in the month of January with a possible announcement in February. As the process is unfolding, I will provide updates with the timeline. I encourage you to continue to contact me if you have any questions.

Once again, thank you so much for the rich conversations we had and the open-ended responses in the survey. Your time was helpful and very much appreciated. I would also like to extend my wishes to you for a very blessed Holiday season - felicidades!

Dr. Vicky Ramos

Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES District Superintendent
