On March 9 and 10, the Morrisville-Eaton Central School District Board of Education will continue its search for a new superintendent of schools when the two finalists visit the school district. During the course of the visits, the candidates will tour the school facilities and meet with student representatives, community members, parents and the administrative, teaching and non-instructional staff.
An important aspect of each visit will be a community forum. The forums will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. in the high school auditorium. At that time, the candidate will introduce himself to the community and respond to questions from those in attendance. The candidate will also be asked to present his vision for the Morrisville-Eaton Central School District if chosen as the new superintendent.
Following the community forums, the Board of Education will select a final candidate for further consideration. The Board anticipates that the appointment of a new Superintendent will take place in early April.
The two finalists for the position are: Gregory Molloy will be in the district Wednesday, March 9. Molloy currently serves as the principal of John C. Birdlebough High School in the Phoenix Central School District, a position he has held since 2007. He previously served as house principal at Cicero-North Syracuse High School.
Prior to serving in a leadership role, Molloy was a math teacher in the East Syracuse-Minoa and Sauquoit Valley school districts. He is the chairperson of the Oswego County Principals group and he has completed the Superintendent Development Program at SUNY Oswego.
Molloy holds a BA from LeMoyne College in secondary mathematics, an MBA from SUNY Oswego, and a school district administrator certificate from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in educational leadership.
Vincent Pompo will be in the district Thursday, March 10. Pompo serves as the principal of W.A. Wettel Elementary School in the Vernon-Verona-Sherrill Central School District, a position he has held since 2009.
