A new superintendent has been appointed by the Marathon Central School District Board of Education. Andy Buchsbaum, a 10 year administrator within the Owego Appalachian Central School District, will be the new superintendent of the school district.
Marathon Board President Justin Lilley said the entire board “is very excited for the future of the Marathon district with the addition of Andy Buchsbaum.”
“Mr. Buchsbaum brings many key skills, strengths, talents, work experience, and professional achievements that are fundamental to getting great things done in the Marathon Central School District,” Lilley continued. “His inspiring team approach to leadership is very motivating and will foster a collaborative learning environment benefiting students, faculty, staff, administration, and the community, continuing the MCS mission to Embrace, Educate, and Empower”
A national search was conducted with assistance from District Superintendent of the Onondaga-Cortland-Madison BOCES Matt Cook, Ed.D.
The school district expects Buchsbaum to begin his role on January 9th, pending contract negotiations. Buchsbaum will replace Interim Superintendent William Locke, who joined the school district after Superintendent Rebecca Stone took a new position in another district.
“I have an immense amount of gratitude for the trust that the Board of Education and the Marathon school community has placed in me,” Buchsbaum said. “I can’t wait to get to work!” Said Andy Buchsbaum in a press release.
