For the Rochester City School District, the road ahead is daunting: Having to recruit a new superintendent amid a financial crisis and pandemic, while awaiting a state monitor, and less than a year after hiring its last one. ‘We’ll see,’ said Van White, the city school board president, who was optimistic Friday that the district would be able to attract top-notch applicants. It was one year to the day since the district announced Dade among four finalists for the superintendent’s job. White suggested the next search might start by going back to the other three. But one is less than a year on the job in Washington, D.C., the other is set to begin a new job on July 1 in Illinois, and the third resigned his post in Georgia back in January amid a whistleblower investigation, and recently was passed over for a superintendent’s post in Wisconsin.
