The Cambridge Central School District Board of Education announced tonight that it intends to extend Ken Facin’s contract through the 2024-2025 school year. Facin has been serving as the interim superintendent since Aug. 15.
The Board of Education is excited to extend Mr. Facin’s contract. Since arriving at CCS, he has brought a fresh perspective and a number of exciting new initiatives that we look forward to seeing to completion. The Board will continue to work alongside Mr. Facin to support the students, parents, staff and entire school community.
“The Cambridge faculty and staff are dedicated to each child in our school, and, alongside our Board of Education, I am excited to continue these wonderful relationships into the next school year,” said Facin. “Our teachers and staff are committed to improving our literacy instruction, implementing STEM initiatives and developing a comprehensive supportive mental health approach that will benefit students for years to come. This work will extend into the next school year and I would like to thank the community and Board for this opportunity to continue leading CCS.”
The Board of Education will begin the process of conducting a superintendent search to select Facin’s successor. The Board plans to work with the WSWHE BOCES District Superintendent, Dr. Turina Parker, throughout the search process. The process will include involvement from a variety of stakeholders. When a formal timeline for the search process is finalized, it will be communicated with the entire school community.
