SINCLAIRVILLE – The Superintendent of Cassadaga Valley School has resigned from his post.
According to an article in today’s Jamestown Post-Journal, Scott Smith stepped down as the top administrator at Cassadaga Valley following questions about his “interactions with another district employee.”
The Board of Education accepted Smith’s resignation during a special board meeting Tuesday afternoon, following nearly three hours in a closed-door session.
In addition to Smith’s resignation, the school board also entered into an undisclosed agreement with high school Principal Dr. Tara DiDomenico.
The board also read a prepared statement following the acceptance of Smith’s resignation which reads, as quoted:
“The Board of Education tonight approved and accepted the resignation of superintendent of schools Scott Smith, which followed the district’s consideration of circumstances that arose relating to Mr. Smith’s interactions with another district employee.”
Smith was appointed superintendent at Cassadaga Valley in 2011. He also served as the district’s high school principal from 1993-97.
Following the meeting, the district announced the hiring of former Sherman superintendent Tom Schmidt of Jamestown, as interim superintendent effective immediately through the remainder of the current school year.
