The Chatham Board of Education has begun its search for a new superintendent.  The vacancy occurred when Dr. Sal DeAngelo announced his retirement effective June 30, 2024.  The Board has dedicated itself to finding an outstanding replacement who will be committed to the District and the outstanding education it offers.

The Board has selected the consulting firm of Castallo and Silky from Syracuse to assist with the superintendent search.  Mr. Alan Pole will be working directly with the Board as well as five interview committees.  The Board has met with Mr. Pole and has established the interview process as well as the advertising, recruiting, and interview timeline.

The advertising and recruiting is under way with April 19, 2024 being the final date for receiving application packets.  After that date, the Board will select candidates to be interviewed by members of the Board on May 28, 29, and 30, 2024.  Finalist interviews will be conducted on June 11, 12, and 13. Five different committees will be established to interview the three finalists on these dates. Faculty, supervisory, support staff, students, and community committees will all provide input to the Board about the finalists.

Members of the Community Interview Committee must be available to attend a workshop for all committee members on Tuesday, June 4, at 3:00 pm as well as the three finalist interviews on June 11, 12, and 13 at 4:30 p.m. It is important that all members who serve on the Community Interview Committee understand that they must attend the workshop and all three interview sessions.

Parents and community members who are interested in offering feedback by serving on the Community Interview Committee should notify Diane Hammon in the District Office no later than May 3, 2024 at 518-392-1502 or Once a listing of all interested community members has been established, the Board will select the individuals to serve on the committee.
