    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.  As expressed at the January meeting, the Board is grateful to Dr. Prendergast for her faithful service and positive impact on the lives of countless students throughout her eight-year tenure as Superintendent.

    Following the January meeting, the Board expeditiously initiated the process of finding the successor candidate to lead the District. The Board has partnered with District Wise Search Consultants, a reputable consulting firm, to facilitate a nationwide superintendent search. Updates about the superintendent search will be posted on this web page throughout the process.
