At the end of 2024, the superintendent of schools in Greece plans to retire



Greece, New York – The superintendent of the Greece Central School District is retiring.

Superintendent Kathleen Graupman declared her intention to retire at the end of 2024 during the district board meeting on Tuesday.

After holding the role for the last nine years, Graupman has over thirty years of experience in the local public school system, having held positions as assistant superintendent and principal.

With effect from January 1, 2025, Jeremy Smalline, Deputy Superintendent of the GCSD, has been named as her replacement.

“I am passionate about this district,” Smalline said in a statement released Tuesday night. “(I) eagerly anticipate collaborating with our strong board of education, our outstanding leadership team, our talented teachers and staff, and our incredible students and families as we continue to move Greece Central forward.”

After working for the district for a year as an administrative intern in 2005, Smalline was promoted to assistant principal at Longridge Elementary School in 2010 and eventually became the district’s principal.

Since then, he has held positions as superintendent of human resources and director of student services and school improvement for the district.

The Greece Central School District ranks tenth in New York State and is the biggest suburban school district in Monroe County.
