West Shore School Board appointed a new superintendent last night, according to Ryan Argot, district spokesman.
At a meeting, the school board accepted the retirement of Supt. Jemry Small, effective at the end of June, Argot said. Small has been with the district for 31 years.
At the same meeting, the board appointed Todd Stoltz, who is assistant superintendent, to replace Small effective July 1, according to Argot. Stoltz was given a four-year contract with a starting salary of $130,000.
Asked about the process, Argot said “the board determined Dr. Stoltz was the individual they wanted to be the superintendent of schools and appropriate procedure was followed.”
Stoltz joined the district in April 2008 as coordinator of child accounting and safety and then became director of management and support services later that year, Argot said. Stoltz became assistant superintendent in 2012.
