Message from Jo Anne L. Antonacci
Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES District Superintendent and Search Consultant

On behalf of the Gates Chili Board of Education, I want to thank the Gates Chili community for your participation and the valuable feedback you have provided us throughout the process thus far. The next step in selecting the next Gates Chili superintendent will be district visits by the finalists and the Meet the Finalist Forums on the specific dates listed in the timeline below.
The three finalists will each make an individual daylong school visit to the district. Each visit will include tours of Gates Chili school buildings and a finalist forum from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Gates Chili High School Library Mezzanine. These forums will be open to the Gates Chili community and allow students, staff and community members the opportunity to meet each finalist and ask questions.
Feedback continues to be collected from the community during this process, including through the confidential online feedback forms below.
