Update on the Dryden Superintendent Search

(Updated 4.20.18)


The Dryden Central School District Board of Education has selected two finalist candidates for the superintendent of schools position. The two finalists are: Elizabeth Coyle, Chief Academic Officer of the Ithaca City School District and Joshua Bacigalupi, Principal of Parker Elementary School in the Cortland City School District.


The Board of Education interviewed six (6) of the seventeen (17) applicants for the position. This was followed by a second interview with four (4) candidates who also interviewed with a representative stakeholder committee, which provided the board with essential input for identifying the two finalists.


On Monday, April 30th each finalist will meet all day with various stakeholder groups who will interview them and provide the board of education with critical feedback. Open forum “Meet the Candidate” community sessions with similar opportunities for input are scheduled for the same date at 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm in the Middle/High School Auditorium. Each candidate will be present for a brief discussion about their qualifications for the position followed by an open forum for questions and answers. TST BOCES District Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Matteson, acting as search consultant, will facilitate the community sessions.
