MORRISTOWN — Morristown Central School Superintendent David J. Glover has tendered his resignation to the Board of Education effective June 30, 2015.
Mr. Glover earns $113,500 annually and said there is no particular reason for his departure other than feeling it’s time to move on.
Originally from Hornell, Mr. Glover informed the school board in a July 9 letter that the nearly one-year notice he is leaving will give the board ample time to find a replacement.
During his six years as superintendent, Mr. Glover listed his accomplishments as the implementation of a district strategic plan, improving test scores, completing a building project at the school and taking steps to protect the financial stability of the district.
Mr. Glover said he has not yet considered future employment plans.
“At this point I’m still looking for a new place,” Mr. Glover said. “I’ve got a couple of irons in the fire.”
He said his proudest achievement at the school has been taking steps to work with students and teachers to improve test scores, in particular on state Regents examinations. He said the efforts have paid off in a noticeable reduction in the number of students enrolled in summer school.
“When I first came to the district there were 30 to 40 kids in summer school. Now we have just three,” Mr. Glover said.
In a statement Thursday, Board of Education President Mary Anne Bailey said the district would begin the process this summer of finding a replacement for Mr. Glover.
“The Board of Education looks forward to working with Dr. Glover during the upcoming school year and wishes him the best in his future endeavors,” said the statement.
