The Superintendent of Schools who has been credited with forging the merger between Mohawk and Ilion Schools has now been named the new Deputy Commissioner of Preschool Through Grade 12 at the New York State Department of Education.

Cosimo Tangorra Jr. resigned on Thursday from Central Valley Academy and earlier on Wednesday, the NYS Board of Regents unanimously acted to approve his appointment to the position previously held by Ken Slentz.  Slentz was recently named the new Superintendent of Schools at Skaneateles.


Tangorra appeared on WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning on Thursday, July 10, 2014:

Prior to serving as superintendent of schools, Tangorra served as a principal and a special education teacher.

“I’m extremely excited about this new move and all I can say is that I fully support the efforts made by Commissioner Dr. John B. King, Jr.,” said Tangorra.  ”I’m also extremely proud of what we did here in the Valley.  I can’t tell you how much I believe in the merger of Ilion and Mohawk schools and I’m so happy about the success we’ve seen in the first year.”

Tangorra served as the Superintendent of the Ilion school district for the last 11 years and Super of the newly merged Central Valley for the last year.
