Medina hosting community forums Monday-Wednesday with superintendent finalists
MEDINA – The three finalists for superintendent of Medina Central School will be available for community forums this week as the district works to pick its new leader.
All three finalists are established education leaders locally.
The three finalists are:
- Dr. Stephen Lunden, Assistant Superintendent at the Maryvale CSD and a Medina resident. (Lunden also served as Medina’s director of finance from November 1998 to July 2000.)
- Dr. Aaron Slack, Principal of the Lyndonville High School.
- Dr. Michael Weyrauch, Principal at the Orleans-Niagara BOCES in Medina.
Each finalist has a day to meet with various stakeholder groups – teachers, PTSA, boosters, students, support staff, and administrators – who will interview and provide the Board of Education with critical feedback. Those days are scheduled for Monday through Wednesday.
Community sessions with similar opportunities for input are scheduled each day from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. in the Board of Education room. One candidate will be available each evening to discuss his qualifications and respond to questions from the community.
The school district is currently led by interim superintendent Tom Cox. He has provided temporary leadership for the district following the death on June 23 of Jeff Evoy, who had served as district superintendent for about five years.
The community is welcome to attend the public sessions with the superintendent finalists. Dr. Clark Godshall, superintendent of the Orleans/Niagara BOCES, is serving as search consultant for the Medina and will conduct the sessions.
