Newark’s high school principal will be the next superintendent of schools in Midlakes.
Nicholas Ganster will be the next superintendent of the Phelps-Clifton Springs school district.
He’ll start in the role next month.
“I am humbled and honored to be selected as the next superintendent of the Phelps-Clifton Springs Central School District,” Ganster said in a news release. “I’m excited to serve the school community and work collaboratively with students, families, staff and the greater community to support our students as they learn and grow along their path to excellence in Midlakes and beyond. I can’t wait to meet everyone.”
He succeeds Matt Sickles, who left the district to be superintendent of schools at the Cobleskill-Richmondville school district.
“We are very excited to welcome Mr. Ganster to our Midlakes community,” said Tracy Altman, Midlakes school board president. “During this extensive interview process, the board worked with different stakeholder groups and survey data to guide our decision-making. Throughout this process, it was clear that the school community was interested in an instructional leader who could foster strong relationships while enhancing opportunities for students and the community. The Board of Education is confident that the experience and dedication Mr. Ganster brings to the position will support and continue to grow our district’s mission and commitment to all students.”
