Applications for the upcoming superintendent vacancy at Unatego Central School are due Feb. 28, an official involved with the process said Friday.
Current Superintendent Charles Molloy announced last fall that he would retire at the end of the school year from the position, which he has held since 2007.
The search is being conducted by DCMO BOCES Superintendent William Tammaro. The salary range is $120,000 to $140,000, according to a brochure about the process. Interviews are scheduled to be conducted and an appointment could be made in May.
Molloy could not be reached Friday for comment. Unatego Board of Education President Lesley Bohacek said that she will be sorry to see Molloy go.
“He’s worked with us through some very difficult times,” she said, adding that the board would like to find a candidate who could provide the same quality leadership.
Molloy was “even tempered” and provided stability, Bohacek said, and people knew what to expect with him. She said she didn’t know how many people have applied for the post, but was confident a candidate would be in place by July 1.
