Superintendent Search Letter PDF

Dear Depew Community,

The Depew Union Free School District Board of Education is pleased to announce that it is commencing a search for the next Superintendent of Schools.  The Board of Education accepted the resignation, for the purpose of retirement, from Dr. Jeffrey Rabey at the June 2021 meeting.

At our Board of Education meeting held on September 21, 2021, the Board approved Dr. Lynn Fusco, Erie 1 BOCES District Superintendent, as the search consultant who will conduct the search process in collaboration with the Board of Education.

Dr. Fusco and the Board of Education have developed a timeline for the search. The Board plans to approve that timeline at the October 12, 2021 Board of Education meeting. Once the timeline is approved, it will be posted to our website on the Superintendent Search page.  Communications regarding the search will be posted to the Superintendent Search page as they become available.

The Board of Education is committed to seeking input from our various stakeholder groups as we move forward with the search. In order to gather as much input from all groups, there are two Thought Exchange survey links below. The first link seeks to gather input about the specific characteristics and qualities that are sought in the next superintendent of schools. The second link seeks to gather input regarding the strengths and challenges the district is facing or will face in the next 3-5 years. The survey links will be available until October 29, 2021.

The Board will review all the responses to the community survey and appreciates the input received from our entire community.

Sincerely,

The Depew Union Free School District Board of Education
