Rochester Business Journal
July 9, 2014

Webster Central School District’s superintendent announced her resignation, effective July 31, the school’s board of education said.

Adele Bovard accepted a new job as deputy superintendent for administration at the Rochester City School District, starting Aug. 1.

Bovard’s total compensation (including salary, benefits and “other” compensation) in 2013-14 was $292,335. By contrast, RCSD superintendent Bolgen Vargas earned $257,971 in 2013-14.

“The Webster Central School District board of education wishes Ms. Bovard the best in the future and we thank her for her efforts over the past several years,” said Mike Suffoletto, Webster board of education president. “We appreciate the many efforts to improve student achievement and continue the tradition of academic excellence at Webster Central School District.”

The board will meet to appoint an acting superintendent while it searches for Bovard’s successor.
