With Dr. Paul J. Alioto Dansville Central School District’s superintendent set to retire at the close of 2023 after a 13-year tenure, two prominent educational leaders have emerged as frontrunners for the top position.
They are Thomas Frazier, the current deputy superintendent at Dansville, and Terri Bavis, the current superintendent at Waterloo Central School District.
Frazier has over 13 years in leadership roles in New York public schools and has an extensive track record in Dansville, having served as a principal at the local high school before his current deputy role, according to the Livingston County News, who broke the news on Thursday.
Bavis became Waterloo’s superintendent in 2016 and received an extension two years later in 2018.
As part of the selection process, both candidates will visit the Dansville district on September 18 and 19, meeting district stakeholders.
Community members can engage with Frazier and Bavis during scheduled meet-and-greet forums at the Dansville Middle School/High School Library.
The Board of Education will hold final interviews post these sessions. The selected candidate is slated to assume the superintendent role by January 2, 2024.
