A Letter From the Williamsville Board of Education on the Superintendent Search

January 25, 2021

Dear Williamsville Community,

We hope this message finds you safe and healthy, and with a renewed sense of hope in 2021.

As we begin the process to find the best superintendent candidate to lead the District, collaboration and transparency are of the upmost importance. At our regular board meeting in January, the Board voted and approved to conduct an open search – with stakeholder input – under the guidance of Dr. Lynn Fusco, Erie 1 BOCES District Superintendent. In addition to this, the Board met with Dr. Fusco in an Executive Session to confirm and finalize the parameters regarding the search for a new superintendent.

We know how important your input will be throughout this process.  Dr. Fusco will be forming several search advisory committees, which will include members of our community.  We would like to invite stakeholders who are interested in being a part of this process to nominate themselves on the District’s website. It is important to note that individuals will be required to meet the time commitment and availably requirements for the search process.  We will have more information regarding the search advisory committees soon.

All updates and information regarding the superintendent will be available on the District’s Superintendent Search tab.  Currently available on the District’s web page is the draft timeline for the search.  You can access it by clicking here: Superintendent Search Timeline.  The timeline for the superintendent search will be approved at our regular board meeting on February 9th.  Part of the search process will include a community survey, which allows all stakeholders an opportunity to share criteria and qualifications they would like for the next superintendent of the District. The community survey can be accessed here: WCSD 2021 Community Survey: Superintendent Search.

As we continue through this process, we will provide updates to keep you informed.

We look forward to going through this process with you to find the next superintendent to lead our incredible school community.
