BCSD Superintendent Search Update

The Board of Education of the Batavia City school district has engaged the services of Genesee Valley BOCES, District Superintendent, Kevin MacDonald to assist them in the search for a new Superintendent. 

The Board is moving forward with the planning and implementation of a confidential search process. While the interview and selection process will be confidential, the Board is committed to transparency and seeking input from the community and staff.

To that end, Mr. MacDonald and his staff will conduct virtual sessions to review the process and seek input on the qualities and characteristics of the next Superintendent from stakeholders. 

Informational Sessions (all conducted via Zoom):

Tuesday, September 28th @ 3:30pm – Staff/employee stakeholders (must have bataviacsd.org domain to register)
Tuesday, September 28th @ 6:00pm – Community stakeholders 
Wednesday, September 29th @ 5:30pm – Staff/community

Register for a virtual information session here.

A valid email address will be required to register. On the day of your chosen session, you will receive an email with the invitation and link to join the meeting.  

For those who are unable to participate in the virtual informational sessions, there is an optional survey available. The survey will be open from September 21st-October 1st.

The Batavia Board of Education has outlined the process as follows:

  • Recruitment period: September 7th – October 1st
  • Review of applications: Rolling
  • Interview period: Week of October 4th – Semi-Finalists, Week of October 18th – Finalists
  • Offer and negotiate a contract with the successful candidate: Late October
  • Announcement of new Superintendent: Early November
  • Anticipated start date: January 1, 2022, or as soon as practical after contractual agreement and Board appointment.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this process, we all understand that change can be unsettling. We are confident our process will lead us to the right Superintendent for the Batavia City School District.
