Superintendent Christmann Announces Resignation - July 2012 A Message from the Board of Education It is with mixed emotions that we announce Superintendent Robert Christmann's resignation from Grand Island Central School District effective Oct. 1. We thank Bob for his six years of service to our district as well as his continued service to education as he steps into a new role as executive director of the Western New York Educational Service Council (WNYESC). We support Bob in his decision and, simply put, we wish him the best. Throughout his time at Grand Island, he served our district and community well, extending Grand Island's legacy of educational excellence. During this time, his superintendent colleagues elected Bob to serve as president of the New York State Council of School Superintendents (NYSCOSS), a role which allowed him to effectively update the board of education on a regular basis regarding state matters that could affect the district.
We fully expect Bob will continue to work with the district as an interim superintendent through the fall.
Seldom does a candidate have universal praise from every reference over multiple past positions," states Superintendent Robert Christmann.

Grand Island School Superintendent Robert Christmann is retiring from his post Oct. 1 to become executive director of the Western New York Education Service Council.

But Christmann, superintendent since February 2007, will continue on an interim basis until the Board of Education hires a successor.
His resignation was accepted with regret by the board at its meeting Monday night. The board also voted to advertise for a consultant on the superintendent search. Board members hope to have a new superintendent by the end of the year.
"This is a decision not made lightly because this district made it so difficult [to take this step]," Christmann said in praising the expertise and dedication of board, administrators and all the district's staff.
He also said Grand Island is "blessed" to have such a high-caliber Board of Education. "I've never once seen a decision where anything took a higher level than what was best for the students," he said.
Quoting Little Orphan Annie, Christmann said: "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. His comment was followed by a round of applause from the board and audience.
Board President David Goris said Christmann has shown "tremendous leadership," which has "advanced the school district's legacy of educational excellence."
In a prepared statement, the board noted several district accomplishments under Christmann's leadership, including passage of a $51 million capital project; initiation of new academic programs; promotion of one of the area's top music programs that has received national recognition; an average of more than 90 percent graduation rate; and averaging more than 92 percent of graduates attending two and four-year colleges, a four percent increase during Christmann's tenure.
Christmann, who also spent 17 years as superintendent of the Newark Central School District near Rochester, is immediate past president of the New York State Council of School Superintendents.
The WNY Education Service Council, affiliated with the University at Buffalo's Graduate School of Education, offers several services, including consultants in superintendent searches; board/superintendent workshops; merger studies; school facilities and staffing analyses and many other projects requested by districts.
Christmann will replace Bren T. Price, retired superintendent of Pembroke schools, who has been executive director of the service council for eight years.

Grand Island Superintendent Robert W. Christmann, the president of the New York State Council of School Superintendents, is among them.

He says most superintendents attend the twice-yearly conference sponsored by his group, and a handful attend an annual national superintendents' conference.
"Anything beyond [those three] -- you'd have to really be selective about it," said Christmann, whose district is less than one-tenth the size of Buffalo.

Robert Christmann, president of the New York State Council of School Superintendents, said districts have gotten the message they can't turn to property taxpayers to make up all the differences in the state cuts.

"We have to do a better job in school to prepare our students for college or the world of work -- and some of the supports we have in place for that might not be there," said Christmann, who is superintendent of the Grand Island school district.
