BOE Appoints Mark Potter as Next Superintendent
To the Liverpool Community,
It is my pleasure to announce that the Board of Education has selected Mr. Mark Potter to serve as Liverpool’s new Superintendent.
Mr. Potter will hold the position of Superintendent Designee from July 1 through July 31, and then begin his tenure as Superintendent of Schools effective August 1, 2013. He was appointed to his new position at tonight’s board meeting.
Currently Mr. Potter is Executive Director of Secondary Education and Curriculum Development. He previously served the District in the capacity of Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics, as Coordinator of Academics and as Principal of the FOCUS Academy. He anticipates completing his Doctorate in Education from Walden University this summer.
We are confident Mr. Potter will provide the best education possible for students and an effective working environment for staff. The meaningful relationships Mr. Potter continues to develop within the District and community should serve him well in his new role as superintendent.

In January, the Liverpool Central School District Board of Education started the process of searching for a new superintendent. After reviewing the qualifications of four experienced groups, the board selected the educational consultant firm of Castallo & Silky to assist them with the search.
In addition, the board sought volunteers to assist them in the search process. These groups will meet for the first time on February 26. All stakeholders in the district are represented and six committees have been formed to act in an advisory capacity to the Board:
Each committee will work individually with educational consultants, Dr. Lucy Martin and Dr. William Silky, to create a profile of desirable attributes/qualities for the new superintendent position.In January, the Liverpool Central School District Board of Education started the process of searching for a new superintendent.

A special workshop meeting of the Board of Education will be held on February 27 at 5:30 p.m. in the District Office Board Room. After reviewing the information provided by a community survey and the six advisory groups, the board will finalize its candidate profile at that meeting. Community members recently had the opportunity to fill out an online survey to rate how important various attributes or characteristics of the next superintendent are to them and will have the opportunity to learn more about the search process during the board workshop.
Martin and Silky will screen applicants based on the profile created and will recommend which candidates should be interviewed by the board. There will be two rounds of interviews: the first to determine semi-finalists and the second to determine the finalists. All six advisory groups will be involved in interviewing the finalists. The Board of Education will make the final decision about the appointment.
The Board of Education anticipates interviewing superintendent candidates in mid-April and announcing a new superintendent in June.
