    2023 Superintendent Search


    At the Board meeting on January 18, 2023, the Great Neck Board of Education approved a resolution accepting the resignation of Superintendent of Schools Dr. Teresa Prendergast for the purposes of retirement, effective July 21, 2023.  The Board expeditiously initiated the process of finding the successor candidate to lead the District by vetting several consulting firms to assist with the search. The Board engaged District Wise Search Consultants, a reputable consulting firm, to facilitate a nationwide superintendent search.

    The school board and search consultants sought community input through an online survey and several focus groups in order to gather opinions on the importance of various characteristics found in effective Superintendents. The results of the survey and focus groups were compiled by District Wise and  Throughout the process, updates about the superintendent search were shared with the community via the district website and during public Board of Education meetings.
