Nothing's final yet, but the White Plains school district is getting set to begin a search for a new schools superintendent.
On Friday, the city learned that Superintendent Christopher Clouet, hired in 2009, is the finalist for the superintendent's job in Tarrytown.
"The opportunity to work in Tarrytown is exciting for me," Clouet said. "Because of its size, I look forward to being able to have more direct contact with students while continuing to work on 21st Century challenges facing all schools."
White Plains is anticipating Tarrytown school officials to be visiting White Plains schools in February, and Clouet is scheduled to meet with the Tarrytown school community on Feb. 13.
“The Board of Education appreciates Dr. Clouet’s service to White Plains and wishes him well in his future endeavors," said White Plains school board president Rosemarie Eller. "Our Board is well aware of the excellent reputation of the White Plains educational system and we will work diligently to continue that tradition.”
White Plains says that as a deal with Tarrytown and Clouet is finalized, the city district will detail its plans to find a new superintendent.
"I have been honored to work for the children of White Plains since 2009," said Clouet. "The district has adapted thoughtfully to rapidly changing times thanks to the strong team of teachers and administrators who collaborate well."
