Dansville Central School Board has reopened its hunt for a new superintendent to succeed the retiring Dr. Paul J. Alioto.
Although the district had previously identified two finalists a month earlier, the board decided, after “much thought and deliberation,” to initiate a fresh search.
One of the finalists, Thomas D. Frazier, currently serves as Dansville Central School’s deputy superintendent, handling various administrative aspects and played a pivotal role in managing the district’s $39 million budget.
The other finalist, Terri Bavis, holds the position of superintendent at Waterloo Central School, making notable contributions such as spearheading significant capital projects and technological upgrades. However, her recent tenure has been marred by budget challenges, which concerned some residents in Dansville.
The board aims to finalize their selection by spring for a July 1 start. An interim superintendent will be appointed to fill the role from January 2, 2024, through the end of that academic year.
