Clough asks board of education not to renew his contract
MASSENA — Saying it’s been a good five-year run as the leader of the district, Massena Central School Superintendent Roger B. Clough II said Wednesday that he has notified the district Board of Education that he does not wish to renew his contract that expires June 30, 2013.
Mr. Clough presented the board with his letter of intent in an executive session held during a June 21 board of education meeting. He said he would submit his formal resignation letter on or about next June 1.
“I talked to the board at the end of June and told them I was very grateful to serve,” he said. “The board has discussed it. They’ve had preliminary discussions.”
Mr. Clough said he made the decision after discussing it with his wife. He suggested it was for the “betterment of the community.”
One of its goals was to remove Mr. Clough from his position, hoping to persuade board members to buy out his contract or not renew it in 2013. A petition signed by 400 people who declared no confidence in Mr. Clough had been presented to the board in November.
“Mr. Clough saw the writing on the wall after the May school board elections,” said Steve J. Boutot, another organizer of the group seeking Mr. Clough’s ouster.

Although Mr. Clough made his intentions known in June, Massena Board of Education President John R. Boyce said the board agreed to withhold any discussion about it until after the start of classes in September to allow students, parents, district employees and the community to focus on the beginning of the school year.
Mr. Clough said he was grateful for the opportunity to serve the district as a teacher, principal and superintendent. While assigned as the J.W. Leary Junior High School principal he took over for former Superintendent Douglas W. Huntley on an interim basis in August 2008 after Mr. Huntley accepted a position with the Queensbury Union Free School District. He was named permanent superintendent in June 2009.
“I have been very fortunate to be employed by the Massena Central School District since 1995 in the capacities of teacher, principal both at Nightengale Elementary School and the J.W. Leary Junior High School, and the last four and a half years as superintendent,” Mr. Clough said.
He said he plans to stay in education.
“I definitely want to stay in the educational field. I’ll be looking at other opportunities,” he said. “Massena is my home and always will be my home.”
“It has been a privilege to serve the district and the community, especially since this is my hometown,” he said. “We have accomplished many goals and raised student scores, as well as creating many new programs in the district. My goals from this day forward are to focus on the great programs we have and continue to put the students first in performing my responsibilities.”
Among the programs that have been instituted during Mr. Clough’s tenure were junior kindergarten, full-day kindergarten, the Alternative Education School, which will graduate its first class this year, and an after-school credit recovery.
“We extend Mr. Clough our best wishes as he pursues new career opportunities,” he said.

Roger B Clough II Announces New Relationships for the School District
USA, 9 July 2013 -- Roger B Clough II has been working with entities outside of the school district to save money on services that they are able to share.
When Roger B Clough II took the reins as Massena Central School District's Superintendent in 2008, the district was having serious financial problems. Roger B Clough II did what he needed to do in order to solve the problems to best prepare for the current school year, but afterwards he continued to look for ways to cut down on unnecessary school district expenditures in order to provide more opportunities for the district's students.
A major help to this mission was Roger B Clough II's partnering with other entities in order to cut costs for district services. Roger B Clough II was able to share district services with several other entities to save resources for both parties. A primary partner in this mission was BOCES, the state of New York's Board of Cooperative Educational Services. Roger B Clough II was able to move many of the district's vital services to the BOCES facilities. For example, the school district's Central Business office, as well as their servers and technology department were moved to BOCES and serviced by their employees.
Roger B Clough II worked to share services with the city wherever possible as well. A contract with Massena Memorial Hospital allowed for staff and student physicals, and various other physician services. Roger B Clough II has also partnered heavily with the Village of Messina. Roger B Clough II has negotiated a shared transportation facility with Messina, where buses and district transportation are housed, repaired, and fuel service is shared as well.
Roger B Clough II looks for every opportunity to share services with surrounding cities and schools. This saves taxpayers money, as the costs are split between the school and other public entities. It also allows both parties more funds to address other issues; in the case of Massena Central School District the money can be use to provide further programs and improvements for district students. Roger B Clough II is thrilled with the success of the program and will continue expanding its implementation wherever he is able. "The Massena Central School District is a leader on sharing services; we are excited about the things that the program has allowed the district to do," said Roger B Clough II.
