At a special meeting of the Board of Education on Tuesday, April 15, the Board appointed Dr. Charles Dedrick, District Superintendent of Capital Region BOCES, as Niskayuna's acting superintendent for what is expected to be a brief period prior to the appointment of an interim superintendent.
Dr. Dedrick is assisting the Board in the process of selecting an interim superintendent.
The appointment of Dr. Dedrick fulfills the district's statutory requirement to have an acting superintendent in place. It is effective from April 16 to the Board's next regular meeting on April 22. Dr. Dedrick is expected to serve in this role on a meeting-to-meeting basis until an interim superintendent is appointed.
Dr. Dedrick is serving as acting superintendent and assisting in the interim selection process in his official capacity as the BOCES district superintendent. There is no additional cost to Niskayuna for either service.
