Richard Moody is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media Ichabod Crane Central School District Superintendent Michael Vanyo has been placed on indefinite medical leave due to an injury suffered during a hiking accident earlier this month. Vanyo underwent surgery August 21, in Syracuse, according to a statement released by the school district last week. “The surgery was successful and he is on the road to recovery,” said Suzanne Guntlow, principal of APPR, Professional Development, Curriculum and Instruction. “He is doing well.” Guntlow will assume the superintendent's day-to-day responsibilities during his absence. Board of Education President Matthew Nelson said Vanyo could be out for six to eight weeks. “We also want to be as supportive of Mr. Vanyo as possible during this time and we’re making sure that all the district’s responsibilities are being fulfilled while he is out,” Guntlow said. Nelson does not believe Vanyo’s absence will disrupt the district’s regular business. The board appointed Questar III Board of Cooperative Educational Services Superintendent Gladys Cruz to act as superintendent during Vanyo's leave, a benefit BOCES offers for districts that require temporary help.
