The Skaneateles Central School District is set to switch up its administrative staff.
According to a communication from the district sent Friday, director of auxiliary services Dan Silky is set to leave the district Aug. 3 to become a business official at the Otselic Valley Central School District. Silky, who joined Skaneateles last year as the assistant business administrator, started in the auxiliary services job July 1 with a $75,000 salary.
Current Skaneateles superintendent Ken Slentz and incoming superintendent Lynda Quick are running a search for the district's director of learning, a position which deals with K-12 special education, according to the press release. Following that search, the district will determine how to replace Silky.
The press release also said Quick was welcomed to the district at a board of education meeting Tuesday. Quick, the district superintendent and chief operating officer of the Cattaraugus-Allegany-Erie-Wyoming BOCES in Cattaraugus County, was appointed starting Sept. 10 at a special board meeting Wednesday, according to district documents. The district did not disclose Quick's salary.
Quick has held the BOCES position since 2013. Before then, she had been the BOCES' assistant superintendent since 2003. Her past experience includes serving as the BOCES attorney and labor relations specialist from 1994 to 2003 and becoming an Ohio associate attorney in 1990.
She has a bachelor’s degree from Kent State University, a Juris Doctor from Case Western Reserve University and permanent certification as a New York State School District administrator and school business administrator from St. Bonaventure University and SUNY Buffalo.
Slentz is leaving Skaneateles to become the superintendent of Ballston Spa Central School District. He starts at the Saratoga County district in August. Other recent administrative changes at Skaneateles include Michelle Crisafulli being set as the State Street Intermediate School principal July 30 and Patrick Brown getting appointed as Waterman Primary School principal. Francine Grannell was also recently appointed as the district's K-12 humanities coordinator.
