Dear Amityville School Community,

The Amityville Board of Education appreciates Superintendent Dr. Ed Fale for his leadership during the post COVID period which enabled security and stability for our district. Our partnership with him continues to be productive and collaborative and he will continue to keep the district on a steady course. The Board is now engaged in the important work of hiring the next Superintendent of the Amityville School District to continue moving the district forward for long term stability.

Through the process of Request for Proposals, the Board of Education will seek to retain the services of a search firm that specializes in aiding school boards with the identification and selection of superintendents. The firm will serve in an advisory capacity to the Board and assist with the logistics of the search. This process will provide us with the greatest opportunity to hire the best candidate to meet the needs of our school district.

The selected search firm, will assist the board of education in developing the search criteria, advertising, interview questions and techniques, as well as in facilitating community input. There will be several opportunities for all stakeholders to contribute their ideas about the desired qualities and strengths of our next superintendent and a vision for the district’s next chapter. Community input will be an integral part of the hiring process and will help guide our direction; we hope you will share your thoughts with us when the time comes. We will seek contribution from stakeholders of the community, through meetings and surveys, to determine candidates with the knowledge, skills and attributes the next superintendent should possess. Based upon the profile that emerges, the search firm will then select candidates. After an intense and thorough interview process, the Board will make the final hiring decision. The Board is committed to communicating with the public frequently throughout this process.

Thank you in advance for your input and assistance during what will be a very important process for our district.

Yours truly,

Lisa M. Johnson
Amityville Board of Education
