JAMESTOWN – Jamestown Public Schools is expected to have its new superintendent in place when the new school year begins on July 1.
The Jamestown School Board will be holding a special board meeting this Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Washington Middle School to take action on the appointment of a new superintendent.
Friday also marks the official end of the current school year, with Saturday, July 1 marking the start of the 2017-18 school year.
The new superintendent, whose name has not been revealed and won’t be until the meeting takes place, will replace previous superintendent Timothy Mains, who was appointed in August 2013 and served until February of this year. Mains left Jamestown to become the Superintendent of the Pine Bush School district outside of Newburgh, NY.
Sylvia Root has served as the district’s interim superintendent while the board searched for Mains’ replacement.
