Carol Pallas
 
After a six-month search that included substantial community input, the Schalmont Board of Education has selected Carol A. Pallas, Ed.D, to be the district's next superintendent of schools.
"With more than 25 years of experience in the field of education, we feel Carol will be a great asset to the community, and an excellent academic leader as we move forward to meet the demands of the 21st century," said Board of Education President Sandra Beloncik, on behalf of the board.
Pallas is expected to be present and unanimously appointed to the position during the Tuesday, Nov. 13, board meeting at Jefferson Elementary School at 7 p.m.
She will begin her new duties on January 1, 2013, following current superintendent Dr. Valerie Kelsey's retirement. Pallas' three-year contract includes a starting salary of $157,500.
"I am honored and excited to become the next Superintendent of the Schalmont Central School District," said Pallas. "I very much look forward to meeting with the school and broader community and working together for the success of all students."

Professional educator with more than 25 years experience

Pallas is currently the Chief Academic Officer and Transition Coordinator in the Greece Central School District, where she has served in various roles over the past 12 years, including assistant superintendent of PK-12 schools for one year; assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction and assessment for elementary schools and professional development for four years; and director/assistant superintendent of human resources/staff relations for four years. She also served the district as an elementary principal for three years.
Prior to that, Pallas served as principal of Mexico Elementary School in Mexico, NY. She also served the Rome City School District for 10 years as an elementary school teacher.
Pallas holds a doctorate in educational leadership from the Warner School at the University of Rochester, and a Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) from the State University of New York at Cortland. She earned a master's degree in education from Elmira College, and a bachelor's degree in education from the State University of New York at Geneseo.

4:31 & 4:56 Were the two of you in a class together? If it was a Spec Ed class you should be bringing forward a lawsuit.

My other question is this: no sooner that the first post goes up about Palas and leading us to the finalist for the jobs that literally within an hour the announcement about the new job is posted. Scats were you holding out on us or is that just a coincidence about the timing of both posts?

To 8:05AM ~~ The announcement about the new job? You've lost me ... ? Do you mean GCSD posted the opening?

Scats, Someone posted on here that we should look at a link which reported the three finalists for the Sup job in Schalmont School District. Shortly after you posted that she had gotten the job. Was it a coincidence that the news was never out?

To 1:12PM ~~ I believe it was coincidence. In fact, the first link I had took me to a page naming the three finalists. A friend discovered that the Schalmont homepage actually named her as the choice, pending their BOE meeting & vote. Whoever sent the info originally seemed to have some insider knowledge.
