The Letchworth Central School District’s Board of Education (BOE) has selected D. Todd Campbell as the district’s next superintendent. Campbell is expected to begin on July 3 pending contract negotiations.
“The search process was rigorous and the Board of Education truly values the input we received from the various stakeholder groups, including staff, and community members who met with the candidates to help us make a final decision,” said Letchworth’s Board President Richard Wilcox. “We are confident that Mr. Campbell will lead our district through the issues we face in our region. With his leadership, we will work together to deliver the best education possible for our students.”
Campbell has been the principal of Wayland Elementary School in the Wayland-Cohocton School District since 2003. During his tenure as principal, Wayland Elementary has been recognized by New York state as a High Performing/Gap Closing School. Buffalo’s Business First Magazine has placed Wayland Elementary School on the Top 50 Elementary Schools in this region.
As principal, Campbell is responsible for the education of 326 students and he supervises 60 faculty and staff members. He creates and manages the instructional budget for the school and also is responsible for all curriculum development and implementation.
From 2000 to 2003, he served as the principal of Perry Middle School where he facilitated the opening of a new middle school. This included the move of students and staff from two separate buildings and the creation of a new middle school program. Previously, he served as the assistant principal at Perry Elementary School.
He began his career in education in 1991 as a teacher at Letchworth Central Schools.
Campbell earned a Bachelor of Science from Houghton College, Houghton, and a master’s degree from The College at Brockport, Brockport. He also holds a Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Administration from Brockport.
“I am blessed and honored to have the opportunity to be the next superintendent of Letchworth Central Schools. The district has a long tradition of solid leadership and what impresses me the most are the people. They are kind, dedicated and passionate about what they do for students each day,” Campbell said. “I am excited to form new friendships and positive relationships with the students, staff and Board of Education as I begin this new journey.”
Campbell will replace Julia Reed who is retiring at the end of the 2016-2017 school year.
