Superintendent of North Colonie Central Schools, Randy Ehrenberg, has announced her retirement, effective July 30, 2010, according to a release issued by district communications specialist Steve King.
I have enjoyed my years in North Colonie and am proud of what we have accomplished here, Ehrenberg said. "I look forward to continuing our work in the months ahead."
"Mrs. Ehrenberg came to North Colonie as an experienced educator and administrator," Board President, Mary Nardolillo said. "During the last eight and a half years we have seen some of the district's highest levels of student achievement in all programs district-wide, demonstrating her commitment to the educational mission of the North Colonie School District."
The North Colonie Board of Education will be discussing the process of finding a successor and developing a timeline.
"Our goal as a Board is to find a successor who possesses the extensive educational experience and strong leadership qualities that have distinguished Mrs. Ehrenberg as one of the most highly regarded superintendents in New York State," Nardolillo said.
In a letter written to district administrators, faculty and staff, Ehrenberg states: "To have played a role in the life of this district has been a tremendous privilege and an important part of my 42-year career in public education. I am extremely grateful to have had this opportunity and fortunate to have worked with such outstanding colleagues, wonderfully supportive and dedicated Board of Education members, and a very positive parent/guardian community."
