  • The Newark Board of Education enthusiastically and unanimously approved the three-year probationary appointment of Edward Gnau to the position of Assistant Superintendent of Business as of July 1.
    Gnau is filling the position being vacated by Robert N. Fogel Jr. who retired June 30 after working in the district for 15 years.
    “This is very exciting and I’m really looking forward to working in this new capacity in the district. I really want to thank the Board of Education for its support,” Gnau said after the meeting.
    A Lyons resident, Gnau has worked in the Newark Central School District for 12 years, teaching math at Newark Middle School his first four years here and then for an additional seven years at Newark High School. Since last July, he has been doing an administrative internship with Fogel.
    “We have every confidence that Ed will do a great job,” Superintendent Henry Hann said. “He has worked this last year as an administrative intern with Bob and we are so pleased to be able to fill this position with someone who has worked in our district and been trained by Bob Fogel.”
    Fogel also is pleased that Gnau received the appointment.
    “Throughout this year’s internship, Ed has proven he is wise beyond his years,” he said. “He has been an outstanding intern. He gets the big picture of school district management and that’s critically important.”
    Fogel noted that part of the requirements of the SUNY Brockport School District Business Leader program Gnau was enrolled in required him to complete various competency projects involving learning about operations of the entire school district business office.
    “By doing this Ed was able to learn about every function in the business office in great detail and that also is critically important,” Fogel said.
    A Lyons native, Gnau graduated from Lyons High School. He received his bachelor’s degree in secondary education in math from SUNY Oswego; his master’s degree in secondary education in biology from SUNY Oneonta; and completed the School District Business Leader program from SUNY Brockport.
    Before Gnau came to NCSD, he taught seventh grade math and science in the Cherry Valley-Springfield School District for nine years.
