HAMBURG — Community members were given a chance to have their voices heard last week as the district looks to fill the upcoming vacancy for superintendent/principal.

Superintendent/principal Edward Bolcar will retire on July 1.

After the Board of Education was given ethics training by New Jersey School Boards Association Representative Robyn Meehan, the community was able to have its own thoughts in developing criteria for the selection of the new administrator.

Community members met to brainstorm and help to establish a profile for the candidate. Although there are many attributes in deciding on a superintendent/principal, community members were asked to share what they felt were the more currents needs at Wallkill. The community's input was kept confidential.

Meehan said the goal is to have a new superintendent in place in nine months.

“To find a really good candidate, we are looking at 6-9 months," she said. "That will leave the summer with an interim superintendent until the new candidate starts.

Although Meehan hopes to have ads placed in the first two weeks of April, it’s not a guarantee.
