Eric RaceThe Johnson City Central School District Board of Education is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Eric Race as superintendent of schools effective July 1, 2021. With the unanimous vote of the seven member board at the May 18, 2021 Board of Education meeting, Mr. Race will replace Ms. Mary Kay Roland following her retirement after a 48-year career in the district.

This appointment completes the three-month search process undertaken by the board of education. President Shannon Edmondson on behalf of the Board of Education stated, “Mr. Race has met all the criteria of the successful candidate we were seeking. He has a demonstrated depth and range of experiences in the district: academic, fiscal, operations and athletic. In addition, because of these experiences, he has proven his ability to work with the diverse population of our schools and our community. We believe he has the ability to move our district forward given all the ever-increasing changes and challenges schools face.”

Mr. Race has been in Johnson City district administration positions since 2010, first as director of health, physical education and athletics, followed by assistant superintendent for administration. He received his Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, and Certificate of Advanced Studies for his certification in School District Leadership and School Building Leadership from SUNY Cortland. Prior to coming to Johnson City Schools, Mr. Race served as a teacher, coach and dean of students in the Sidney Central School District.
“I am honored and grateful at the opportunity to lead and serve the students, parents, staff and school community in this capacity. Johnson City is a great school district. I feel extremely fortunate to work with such a caring community of professionals whose singular focus is on the success of our students. We will work extremely hard and cooperatively with all stakeholders moving forward and continue our focus on improving educational opportunities and outcomes for all Johnson City students.” Race said.
