• Message from Superintendent Search Consultant:

    On behalf of the Gates Chili Board of Education, I want to thank the Gates Chili community for your participation and the valuable feedback you have provided us throughout the process thus far. The next step in selecting the next Gates Chili superintendent will be district visits by the finalists and the Meet the Finalist Forums on the specific dates listed in the timeline below.
    The three finalists will each make an individual daylong school visit to the district. Each visit will include tours of Gates Chili school buildings and a finalist forum from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Gates Chili High School Library Mezzanine. These forums will be open to the Gates Chili community and allow students, staff and community members the opportunity to meet each finalist and ask questions.
    Feedback will continue to be collected from the community during this process. There are links to online feedback forms for each finalist below and printed forms will be available at each Meet the Finalist Forum.
    I also welcome you to contact me directly should you have any questions or comments. I may be reached at 585-352-2411 or jantonac@monroe2boces.org.
    The goal is to have a new superintendent in place by July 2019. I will continue to provide you with updates as we move forward.
    Hope to see you at the finalist forums,
    Jo Anne L. Antonacci
