Staff Report
LIBERTY — January 11 — The Liberty Board of Education appointed William Silver, Ed.D, as the superintendent of schools for the Liberty Central School District at its meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 8.
Silver most recently served as the superintendent of schools at Killingly Public Schools in Killingly, CT, a position he held since 2005. He comes to Liberty with nearly 40 years of experience in the field of education.
“We look forward to Dr. Silver’s arrival and feel that he will be an excellent asset to our community and a first-rate academic leader,” said Board of Education President Daniel Parkhurst. “The search process can be a lengthy and demanding undertaking, and the Board is very grateful for the leadership and guidance of Sullivan BOCES District Superintendent Larry Thomas.”
Dr. Silver will begin his new duties on January 14, following interim superintendent Edward V. Rhine’s departure from the district after coming out of retirement to fill the position left vacant in September. Silver’s three-year contract includes a starting salary of $154,000.
“I am very excited to be joining the Liberty Central School District, and look forward to working with the board of education, faculty, staff, parents and community members to move the district forward,” said Dr. Silver. “During the interview process, there was a clear sense of pride expressed about the district and the community. Joining a district and town with such a strong sense of purpose makes me believe that we can accomplish great things.”
Silver began his career in public education in 1974 at Shoreham-Wading River Central School District in Shoreham, NY, where he was a fourth and fifth-grade teacher. In 1986 he became principal of East School at the Long Beach City School District, a position he held for nearly 10 years before becoming the superintendent at Springs Union Free School District in East Hampton, NY from 1995-99. He then served as superintendent at Hebron Public Schools and Regional School District No. 8 in Hebron, Andover and Marlborough, CT from 1999-2004.
Dr. Silver holds a doctorate in educational leadership from Columbia University Teachers College and a New York State School Administrator/Supervisor (SAS) Certification from Hofstra University with a major in educational administration. He obtained his master’s in curriculum and teaching, elementary education from Columbia University and holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Union College in Schenectady.
