The duties that come along with being superintendent of the Central Valley School District could become a permanent gig for current Acting Superintendent Jeremy Rich.
The school district announced Friday that the district’s Board of Education is expected to appoint Rich to the position of superintendent at the board’s next meeting on Thursday, Feb. 15. On Jan. 24, the board announced it would focus on internal candidates to fill the position.
Back in December 2017, former Central Valley Superintendent Rich Hughes announced he would be leaving the district to take over as superintendent of a school district in Erie County, New York. Jeremy Rich, who’s currently the principal for Barringer Road Elementary School, was named acting superintendent at that time.
In 2017, Rich was named New York State Elementary Principal of the Year by the School Administrators Association of New York State and the National Association of Elementary School Principals.
The Board of Education is planning to have a brief reception after the anticipated appointment on Feb. 15. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the large group instruction room at Central Valley Academy, and the community is invited to attend, as they are at all public BOE meetings.
