HOLLEY – Holley Central School Board of Education President Brenda Swanger Monday evening introduced the district’s interim superintendent, John Schiess, during the regular monthly meeting of the board.

Schiess was appointed to the post during a special meeting on Jan. 2, and will serve while Superintendent Robert D’Angelo is out on extended medical leave.

Swanger told Orleans Hub that D’Angelo’s medical condition arose suddenly and the board is grateful that Schiess accepted the interim post.  She said she expects D’Angelo to be on medical leave until sometime in February.

Schiess is a retired assistant superintendent for Human Resources at Pittsford Central School. His career in education has spanned more than 35 years. He currently works as an education consultant and most recently has served as interim assistant superintendent for Monroe #1 BOCES.

Additionally, Schiess has served as adjunct faculty at Monroe Community College and the University of Rochester.

“I’ve really enjoyed my first week,” Schiess told board members. “You have a wonderful facility here.”
