GREENFIELD — The Greenfield-Central School board expects to introduce the district’s new superintendent at the February board meeting, if not sooner.
The announcement of the corporation’s top administrator will be the culmination of roughly eight months of searching for the right candidate, board president Retta Livengood said this week. The district’s new leader will replace Dr. Linda Gellert, who is retiring at the end of the school year after nine years as the corporation superintendent.
The board has narrowed that search down to its top two candidates, one of which is from within the corporation, Livengood said. Last week, the board met in a special executive session to discuss the new superintendent’s salary and benefits package.
“We are in such a positively wonderful position to be in the black as a corporation,” Livengood said. “We certainly don’t want to disrupt that momentum that we’ve got. I’m assuming there will probably be some negotiation, as there is in any job offer.”
The current superintendent salary is $124, 320.
Livengood said she expects an official offer will be made to one of the two remaining candidates within the next week.
