Paul Spaventa, Offered The Job of Gloucester City School Superintendent; Two Board Members Not Allowed to Vote

Correction: An earlier headline read that Spaventa was named  as City Superintendent. He  has not been appointed, the job was offered to him. The contract is being negotiated.

The Gloucester City Board of Education at Tuesday meeting, voted to offer Paul Spaventa the position of Superintendent over Gloucester High School Principal Jack Don. The vote was made after two Board of Education members (Bruce Darrow and Bruce Marks) were notified they would not be entitled to vote as they had relatives working in the school district.

Nearly 19 candidates expressed interest and the entire Board of Education voted that both Don and Spaventa would advance as the top two finalists.

The Board of Education will now negotiate a contract with Mr. Spaventa. If he accepts the Board's offer Mr. Spaventa will begin his tenure in November and take full control on January 1, 2008.

Dr. Stansky will leave January 1, 2008 with a current salary of approximately $175,000.
