— The three-year tenure of Schroon Lake Central Superintendent Bonnie Finnerty is coming to an unexpected end in August.

Finnerty, who was hired at the start of the 2011-12 school year, resigned from the position, citing “personal/health reasons.” Members of the Board of Education accepted the resignation at the April 24 meeting.

Her leave takes effect Aug. 1.

“I have had three outstanding years at Schroon Lake and this is an absolutely fantastic district,” Finnerty said. “The faculty and staff are extremely professional and very hard working and they always strive to do what is right for the kids.”

Before coming to Schroon, Finnerty was the Middle School Principal in the Oswego School District.

She said the school board has already started preliminary discussions into where they will go from here with its chief administrator position.

“They are going to be looking at all of the options and having more discussions at upcoming board meetings,” Finnerty said.

As far as the potential of a shared-service administrator, a topic that has previously been rumored in a partnership with schools like Keene, Finnerty said the board is weighing all options.

“One option is the possibility of a shared superintendent,” she said. “These are still very preliminary talks about the options that exist.”
