CLYMER, N.Y. — Clymer Central School has selected a new superintendent, but will not release the candidate’s name until a contract has been signed.
“This person just received the contract this afternoon,” said Clymer School Board President Nancy Westerburg during Monday’s board meeting. “So, we are in the waiting process right now.”
Clymer began its search, which was assisted by District Superintendent of Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES Robert S. Guiffreda, in May after former Superintendent Scott Smith announced his resignation.
Smith was hired in April 2008 and served in the superintendent position until July 2011. Since then, Robert Niver has been serving as interim superintendent.
Westerburg declined to comment on whether the chosen candidate is a male or a female.
If the contract is signed, Westerburg said it is possible the name of the new superintendent will be announced at the next board meeting on Nov. 14 at 4 p.m.
“As soon as we have something definite we will let you know,” said Westerburg during Monday’s meeting.
Community members, teachers, support staff, administration and students have all played a role in the selection process.
All of those groups were part of a final interview process that lasted three days.
Feedback from those interviews were shared with members of the school board, who ultimately chose the final candidate.
