Earlier this school year, Superintendent of Schools Richard Rozakis announced his plans to retire from the Babylon School District in June 2015. As the selection of a new superintendent is one of the most important decisions a board of education can make, the district has retained the services of District Wise Search Firm to assist with the selection of a new district leader.

In consultation with the firm, the Board will be meeting in the coming weeks to establish criteria for screening potential candidates and outlining the qualifications and characteristics the next district leader should possess. The community is encouraged to stay informed of this important decision by attending regularly scheduled Board meetings and reviewing updates posted to the district website.

District Wise Search Firm, established in 2009, was created from the perspective of school board members. They have worked to secure the most qualified candidates for school districts throughout New York State.
