Union-Endicott Names New Superintendent

Posted: Updated:

The Union-Endicott Central School District Board of Education voted unanimously Tuesday to enter
into contract negotiations for the role of superintendent with Nicole M. Wolfe, the district’s current assistant
superintendent for business and elementary education.

One of several potential candidates identified through a formal search that began late last year, Wolfe
would replace current Superintendent Suzanne McLeod, who last June announced plans to accept a
position at Binghamton University’s Education Leadership program starting this fall.

Wolfe began her career in education in 1991 as an elementary school teacher. She then served as
assistant principal at the Owego-Apalachin Central School District (1999) before taking the job as
elementary principal at the Whitney Point Central School District (2000). She joined the Union-Endicott
Central School District in 2008, starting as director of curriculum & instruction, then moving on to
director of pupil services in 2012 and then assistant superintendent in 2015.

“Nicole possesses the proven leadership skills and passion for education that we believe will be critical
to guiding our district through the years ahead,” said board President Dick Testa. “She has demonstrable
experience in all the key facets of running a modern educational system, including curriculum
and professional development, budget preparation, capital project management and community
outreach. We are confident her success-oriented approach will serve our students, our district and our
community well.”

Pending successful contract negotiations, Wolfe will start her new position as superintendent effective
July 1, 2019.

McLeod has been with the Union-Endicott district since July 2003. She has served as superintendent
for the past decade.
