Cassadaga Valley Central School District will be operating without a principal for its middle and high school.
The Jamestown Post-Journal is reporting today that Cassadaga Valley principal Dr. Tara DiDomenico has been given a paid leave of absence. The news follows the announcement on Tuesday that Superintendent Scott Smith was resigning immediately from his post.
Several school officials will be helping out to fulfill the duties of the principal for the short term, although no timeline was given on whether or not the district plans to hire a new principal. The board will hold its next regular meeting Monday and review its options.
Earlier this week, the Cassadaga Valley Board of Education approved and accepted Smith’s resignation, which followed the district’s consideration of circumstances that arose relating to his interactions with another district employee. No other details on the incident are being provided by school officials.
Former Sherman school superintendent Tom Schmidt is serving as acting superintendent.
