Local districts get back in the swing of things

(Continued)

Livshin said Milford has added some college credit and advanced placement offerings. Enrollment is at about 465 students, which is about the same as last year, he added. There is just one section of second grade.

CV-S began the school year under the leadership of Interim Superintendent Richard Rose. He will be staying with the district a longer than expected because the school board reopened the search for his replacement after the top candidate rejected the position, according to Rose.

The board of education was expected to choose a final candidate for the position in July with a projected start date of Sept. 1. According to Rose, the second round for applications had a deadline set for Aug. 30. Interviews are expected to be done this month and the hope is to have a superintendent begin around Nov. 1, he said.

Rose was appointed to the position during a board of education meeting on April 18. He served as the deputy superintendent from April 23 to May 10 and became the interim superintendent on May 11.

The interim superintendent was the superintendent in Canajoharie for more than 23 years before retiring in December of 2011. Robert Miller ended his tenure as school superintendent at CV-S by accepting a superintendent position at Herkimer Central School District.

Rose said enrollment is about the same as it was last year with about 500 students.

Students returned to an improved facility. Several new doors were installed in the building at the end of June, floor tiles have replaced carpeting in the elementary hallway, student artwork has been mounted near the auditorium and staff gave the building a thorough cleaning, according to Rose.

CV-S has added two new faces to its staff, an elementary teacher and a teacher who will be linking technology to instruction, according to Rose. The district will be sharing a French teacher with Owen D. Young Central School as it phases out the program. Three teachers have retired.
