ALBANY, N.Y. -- The Albany School District could be closer to getting their next superintendent. The district Board of Education voted on Tuesday to ask the State Department of Education make Dr. Marguerite Wyngaard the districts new superintendent.
Dr. Wyngaard has been a senior administrator for the past eight years in New Jersey's Paterson Public School. Wyngaard does not hold a school district leader certificate in New York, but could still become superintendent if the State Education Department decides to grant her a certificate based on her experience and training.
Officials said the decision could take three to six weeks.
