Peru Central School District Selects New Superintendent

The Peru Central School District Board of Education has selected Mr. Thomas Palmer as its new Superintendent of Schools. Mr. Palmer will start his new position on Jan. 1, 2018.

Mr. Palmer is currently the Superintendent of Schools in the Tri-Valley CSD in Grahamsville, NY, and has been in that position since 2008. He is certified in New York State as a School District Administrator (since 2003) and has served as an Assistant Principal and Principal in North Carolina and New York schools.

The search was conducted by Champlain Valley Educational Services (CVES), headed by the CVES District Superintendent Dr. Mark Davey.  CVES worked closely with the Peru CSD Board of Education to conduct a community survey, hold several public forums and to engage Peru community stakeholders in the search process.

Mr. Palmer is pleased to be coming to Peru, “I am very eager to get to work in the Peru Central School District. I am coming into a district that already has many innovative and effective programs, such as Peru Pride, ADK P-TECH and the CHISEL Project. My goal is to continue these programs, and to seek out new educational opportunities for the students of the Peru CSD.”

Peru CSD Board of Education President Kim Mayer said, “The Board is excited to have an educational leader with a history of excellence serving as our Superintendent. Thomas Palmer’s experience and expertise is a good fit for Peru, and we look forward to working with him to keep our district on the cutting edge of educational practices, and to stay on the road to continuous improvement.”

“The Peru Board of Education would like to thank the faculty, staff, students and community members for their valuable input throughout its Superintendent of Schools search process.”

Interim Superintendent Cynthia Ford-Johnston will stay on as a consultant to assure a smooth transition for Mr. Palmer.
