NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- At the end of the New Hartford Board of Education meeting Tuesday night, President Pam King announced the board had accepted the resignation of Superintendent Robert Nole. He will stay on until April 1 of this year.

King says Nole has been with the district for 17 years, and during that time the school won numerous awards and accolades. She said the board wishes him well and the search for his replacement will begin immediately.

Following that announcement, NEWSChannel 2 received a statement from Nole:

"It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve the New Hartford students, staff, parents and community residents as an Assistant Superintendent, which began in 2003, and culminated as your Superintendent of Schools in 2008. Together we have created significant program growth. During my tenure as Superintendent, we added STEAM programs, introduced interactive whiteboards and state-of-the-art language labs, expanded Advanced Placement courses, initiated drone technology, enhanced safety, medical and social, emotional services.

Throughout this era, our beloved students have flourished and New Hartford has continually received awards as one of the top-rated school districts in the nation. The district received multiple Gold and Silver medals by U.S. News and World Report and our schools were recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.

Our facilities were improved with new construction in areas such as science and technology rooms, modernized district performing arts center and music rooms, Don Edick Multi-Purpose Athletic Field and Jumbotron scoreboard, Oxford Road cafeterias and Large Group Instruction Room, elementary playgrounds, and district-wide security.

It was a pleasure to create the inaugural Prince Charming ball for the New Hartford School Foundation. Since 2010, this annual signature event has yielded numerous investments to our educational programs and heartfelt memories for mothers and grandmothers that will last a lifetime for their sons and grandsons.

I will continue in my capacity as Superintendent of Schools through April 1, 2021 to provide a seamless transition so our schools may continue to move forward. I am excited about the new ventures and opportunities ahead of me and I am forever grateful to the talented and dedicated group of New Hartford employees. Your commitment to children and their success amazes me each and every day and I wish each of you, and the district, an abundance of success with all of your future endeavors."
