BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – Officials in the Bronxville School District have completed the initial phase in their search to find new principals for Bronxville elementary and high schools.
District administrators said they used advertising and various other professional networks – including regional superintendent groups, the Tri-State Consortium and university programs – to develop a strong pool of candidates for the position.
In addition to those professional outlets, two parent volunteers made use of the social media website LinkedIn as a way to expand the pool. There were 130 candidates for the elementary school opening and 86 for the high school position.
Superintendent David Quattrone, Assistant Superintendent John Kehoe and Director of Pupil Personnel Services Rachel Kelly screened the applicants and conducted initial interviews with the most promising candidates. They have narrowed the field to five semifinalists for both positions, all of whom have previous administrative experience.
The next phase of the process will begin early next month. Interview committees featuring teachers, parents, board members and high school students have been named. The committees will look to identify a group of finalists to be considered for the position.
When the finalists are chosen, there will be another round of interviews, reference checks and a site visit for the final candidate. The Board of Education will interview the finalists, with an appointment expected in late April or early May.
