Finalists named for school superintendent

DUNDEE—The Dundee board of education has identified two finalists for the district’s next superintendent. The finalists are Supervisor of Pupil Personnel Services for the Elmira City School District Joyce Carr and Superintendent of Schools for Canaseraga Central School District Kelly Houck. Whoever is selected to the position will be appointed effective July 1.
“Our board has been diligent in narrowing the pool of candidates to these two strong finalists,” President James Koehler said. “We are very excited about what each finalist will bring to Dundee School District.”
The two finalists are scheduled for day-long interviews Wednesday, March 19 and Thursday, March 20. Throughout this process, finalists will meet with many different stakeholders including students, district administration, teachers, support staff, community members and the board of education.
“The board has been extremely detail-oriented and thoughtful throughout this search process,” Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES District Superintendent and Search Consultant Scott Bischoping said. “Their selection of these two experienced educators as finalists is a great example of their hard work.”
Carr has been the Supervisor of Pupil Personnel Services for the Elmira City School District for more than 10 years. Before joining Elmira City School District, Carr was the assistant middle school principal for the Owego Apalachin School District. Carr began her educational career with an 11 year tenure as a teacher in the Cortland Enlarged City School District. Carr has developed plans and facilitated activities to decrease suspension and drop rates and improve graduation rates.
Houck has served in public education for more than 10 years from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. She has a masters in education administration and has served as superintendent, building principal and director of special education and transportation. Houck said she has helped to increase student attendance in her district to 98 percent while increasing advanced placement course offerings by 50 percent.
