Resignation of ex-superintendent announced

Thursday, April 24, 2014 - Updated: 1:31 AM

OPPENHEIM -- Wednesday evening, following a special OESJ Board of Education meeting, the board and former Superintendent Laura Lawrence jointly announced Lawrence's resignation from the position of superintendent of schools.

Prior to the merger, which brought the Oppenheim-Ephratah and St. Johnsville central school districts together as of July 1, 2013, Lawrence served as

superintendent of schools of the St. Johnsville Central School District. She served as superintendent of the merged school district from July 1 to November 6, when the OESJ Board placed her on paid administrative leave.

Lawrence led the St. Johnsville Central School district through the detailed merger process, then helping to successfully launch the new district while bringing students from each school together.

Lawrence's many accomplishments took place not only during her time as superintendent of St. Johnsville and OESJ, but also during her lengthy career in education, during which Lawrence also served as D.H. Robbins Elementary School principal.

According to a press release issued by the OESJ Board of Education Wednesday evening, the board wishes to thank Lawrence "for her service to the school district."

Lawrence thanked the OESJ Board of Education for the privilege of serving as superintendent of St. Johnsville Central School and the merged district. As quoted in the press release, "She has always enjoyed working with the staff, volunteers and community members to ensure that all students in the district have the best opportunity to reach their full potential. She wishes the school district well in the future and is confident that its leaders will continue to act in the best interest of the students and community."
