West Genesee community meets superintendent candidates

Local News

CAMILLUS, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Tonight, parents in the West Genesee School District will get their first chance to meet the future superintendent of schools.

After narrowing the search down to three, the district is hosting a community meeting where parents will get the chance to weigh in, voicing both support and concern.

This is just another step in the process for the superintendent candidates.

The three finalists are:

  • David Bills, a superintendent from the Finger Lakes region outside of Rochester
  • Linda Goeway, who has been working as a superintendent in the Albany area, but previously worked at Central Square
  • Brian Kesel, who has served his entire educational career in the West Genesee Central School District, including the past 12 years as an assistant superintendent

Candidates have been doing interviews with members of the district throughout the day and tonight, they’ll go before parents and address their concerns.

This district recently voted out two members of its Board of Education. They will still help decide who the superintendent is. The newly voted in members start after this decision is expected to be made.

The community forum begins at 6 p.m. in the High School Auditorium and the Board of Education meeting will be Wednesday night in the High School Library.
