BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - The Bronxville Board of Education has officially begun its nationwide search to replace Superintendent David Quattrone, who is retiring at end of the new school year.
In January, Quattrone announced that he would retire at the end of the 2016-17 year after assisting in the search for his successor. Now, the Board is seeking the community’s assistance as the search begins in earnest.
The district has hired search consultants who will be available at a special meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20 in the high school auditorium. They have also released a brief survey that will allow them to provide additional input.
At the meeting, the consultants “will describe the process and timetable for conducting the search and devote the majority of the meeting to answer three questions,” asking what the community is looking for out of the leader of the school district.
According to Board of Education President Jeffrey Rohr, information from the upcoming and future meetings will be synthesized into a set of search specifications that are expected to be approved at a meeting on Thursday, Oct. 20.
Quattrone, who will complete his 25th year as a school superintendent next year, said that the district's administration “believes that the plan in place is in the best interest of the students, faculty, leadership team and the educational program.”
