August 18, 2014

The Monticello Central School District Board of Education has selected Tammy Mangus as the school district’s new superintendent, replacing current Superintendent Daniel A. Teplesky, who will be retiring on September 1, 2014. He has been with the district since 2011. The decision was made during a special meeting of the board held this evening.

The superintendent search began earlier this year when Mr. Teplesky announced he would be retiring on September 1. The Monticello board of education worked in collaboration with Sullivan County BOCES Superintendent Larry Thomas, who spearheaded the search on behalf of the board. Beginning in winter 2013/14, the board conducted an open search, which did not result in a consensus. During a further review of potential candidates, the board considered Ms. Mangus for the position.

Ms. Mangus, who is currently the assistant superintendent for curriculum & instruction, will begin her new position on September 1, 2014 at an annual salary of $165,000.

“The board looks forward to working with Ms. Mangus in this new role. We believe her knowledge of our district, as well as time spent as assistant superintendent, position her as the most qualified candidate for the role of superintendent of schools,” Monticello Board of Education President Stacey Sharoff said.

Ms. Mangus is already looking to shape the future of the district. “I am very excited to have been selected as the next superintendent of the Monticello Central School District,” Mangus said. “I look forward to working in partnership with our dedicated faculty and staff, as well as members of the school board and our community, to provide students the very best education we have to offer. As we move forward, I envision a district built on a foundation of strong relationships, innovative thinking and cutting edge programs. We want others to look at Monticello and seek to emulate what we do as an educational institution.”
