Dr. Giarrizzo was formally appointed to this position at the February 15, 2017 special meeting of the School Board. Dr. Giarrizzo is currently the Superintendent of Schools of the Pelham Public Schools, a District in Westchester County widely regarded as one of the nation’s finest. He has held that role since July 2013. Prior to being named Superintendent, he was Pelham’s Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction, and Personnel for two years. His experience also includes work as a Director of Special Education.
Peter Giarrizzo was the unanimous choice of the trustees at the end of a national search and the board would like to thank Leadership Advantage for all of their efforts in this process. Board President Toni Labbate said “Dr. Giarrizzo shined as the right choice to lead our district. His dedication to educating the whole student and experience in all aspects of school management including school finance, special education and strategic planning were only some of his qualities.” His former board president spoke of his “collaborative leadership style and excellent communication skills.” Vice-President Sara Jones added, “Our entire board found him to be a careful listener and a dedicated educator.”
