Said Steven Jackoski, Board President, “We had a strong pool of potential interims, but Dr. Hunter stood out and checked all our boxes. Dr. Hunter is an experienced and successful Superintendent, has served in an Interim capacity, and also possesses specific skills that we are looking for including a strong knowledge of school finance, excellent communication skills, and a deep understanding of instructional practice.”
Said Jon Hunter, “I am excited about serving the Lake George School District community during this transition. It is a district with quality programs, strong professionals and outstanding children”.
