MEDINA – The Board of Education hasn’t selected a new superintendent, and “is in the process of pursuing other alternatives at this time,” said Wendi Pencille, president of the BOE.

The board and many community members interviewed three finalists in late November.

The finalists all had Medina connections.

Dr. Stephen Lunden is assistant superintendent at the Maryvale 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, grew up in Medina and is a Medina resident.

Dr. Michael Weyrauch, Principal at the Orleans-Niagara BOCES in Medina, is a former Medina teacher and vice principal.

Tom Cox will continue to serve as interim superintendent until mid-February, Pnecille said today.

She issued the following statement and said she could not add any more information at this time:

“In October, the Board of Education of the Medina Central School District initiated a search for its Superintendent and vetted and interviewed a number of candidates. At this time, no candidate has been selected. The Board would like to express its sincere gratitude to all community members and district employees who contributed their time and effort in this important process. In addition, the Board would like to thank Orleans-Niagara BOCES for their assistance throughout. The Board is in the process of pursuing other alternatives at this time.”
