HURLEY - The Hurley School Board decided Monday there will be no long search to replace district administrator Chris Patritto, who will retire a year from now.

Coming out of a closed session, the board announced it had agreed to hire Kevin Genisot as district administrator, effective June 30, 2019.

Genisot is currently employed as elementary principal at the K-12 school. He started off as an elementary teacher at Hurley and became principal in 2012.

Genisot, who graduated in 1997 from Hurley High School, will continue in the principal's role for the 2018-'19 school year and will also serve as special education director, while learning the ropes under Patritto.

The district will now seek to hire an elementary principal-athletic director.

Athletic director Steve Eder, who also works as director of student activities and community learning, will lose his job as of June 30 because the after-school federal grant funding the district had received for the past several years has been eliminated.

Eder informed the board the funding had been lost at its last regular monthly meeting.

In another administrative move, finance director Michele Seibel is retiring Jan. 3 and will need to be replaced.
