BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Bronxville Schools Superintendent David Quattrone recently provided the Board of Education and public with an update on leadership changes at the district.
"With these changes comes uncertainty but also opportunity," Quattrone said. "I am looking forward to building on our current strengths and moving forward with new perspective and new energy. We are mindful of the need to clarify the various new role relationships with care, provide proper support, and monitor progress. We are eager to model the same kind of collaborative and innovative work that we value in our students and faculty."
Quattrone said that 179 people applied for the elementary school principal position. The district's external consultant, the director of pupil personnel services, assistant superintendent and superintendent reviewed the applications and narrowed the group to 35 candidates. The district administrators selected nine to interview and narrowed the group to five. The candidates include an elementary principal, a charter school head, and three assistant elementary principals. An appointment is expected this spring.
Quattrone also updated the community on the director of curriculum instruction.
"We developed job specifications for this new position, and advertisements attracted 189 applicants," he said, noting that an appointment is also expected in the spring.
Following the retirement of John Kehoe from the Central Office Realignment, the district is reconfiguring and reassigning certain duties and responsibilities, Quattrone said.
"We expect to finalize the new assignments in conjunction with the Board's review and revision of administrative policies," he said.
