Waterloo’s current Superintendent, Terri Bavis, is in contention for a new role as she recently emerged as one of two finalists for the superintendent position in Dansville. The other candidate was identified as Thomas Frazier, who currently serves as Dansville’s deputy school superintendent.

The vacancy comes as current superintendent, Dr. Paul Alioto, prepares for retirement at the close of 2023.


Over the last year, contract extension talks for Bavis has caused a split within the district among residents.

The pursuit of a new position by Bavis comes amid some tensions in the Waterloo district, where the school board saw an aggressive campaign against her contract extension.

Despite the contentions, a portion of community and faculty members voiced support for her. Bavis received a 3% salary increase for the 2023-24 school year from the board, raising her annual earnings to $181,600.

If Bavis is selected, she would begin in Dansville on Jan. 2, 2024. Last week, both candidates were in Dansville answering questions from the community.
