The Baldwinsville Central School District Board of Education has selected and appointed Dr. David Hamilton as its new superintendent of schools. He is expected to begin his duties as superintendent on July 1.
Hamilton is currently the superintendent of the Penn Yan Central School District which serves approximately 1,500 children. He has served as its superintendent for three years, and previously served eight years in the Churchville Chili Central School District in several administrative capacities including director of curriculum and assessment professional development, principal (seventh through ninth), and director for technology and fine arts.
Hamilton was unanimously chosen from a very strong pool of candidates recruited as part of a national search conducted over the last three months. The district staff, students and community focus groups gave the board of education a clear idea of the characteristics desired in a new superintendent. The community wants a collaborative, knowledgeable, experienced educator and the board of education said it believes it has found that person in Hamilton.
The board plans to officially appoint Hamilton to the position of district superintendent at its meeting on June 2. The three-year term of Dr. Hamilton’s initial appointment and employment will commence on July 1.
Hamilton will succeed Superintendent Jeanne Dangle who is retiring from the district after serving as its superintendent for 11 years.
