Springville School Board hires consultant for superintendent search

A consultant will guide the superintendent search process in the Springville-Griffith Institute Central School District. 

The Board of Education named David O’Rourke as a consultant after meeting in an executive session Tuesday night. 

O’Rourke, superintendent of the Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES, also advised the board before it appointed Sylvia Root as acting superintendent on May 26.  

Paul Connelly, the former superintendent, went on vacation from May 4 to June 30, when his resignation took effect. Root will serve as interim superintendent until the board chooses a replacement.
