School Board Suspends Superintendent Search

The Manassas Park City Schools School Board today announced it will suspend its search for a new Superintendent of Schools.The School Board began its search in February after accepting Dr. C. Bruce McDade's letter of retirement.

School Board Chair Debbie McIntyre-Yurkovich said that the immediate future created by COVID-19 with subsequent closures and travel restrictions are the main factors in their decision.

"As a board, the decision to suspend our search for a superintendent was made to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the hiring process," said McIntyre-Yurkovich. "We want to hire the best possible candidate for MPCS, and the Board feels that our ability to do that is significantly hindered in this current environment."

McDade Asked to Remain for 2020-2021 School Year

The MPCS School Board asked Dr. McDade to remain at his current post and delay his retirement by one year.

"For continuity and consistency, particularly in these stressful times, the Board felt that the best course of action for our school community would be to ask Dr. McDade to remain at MPCS," McIntyre-Yurkovich said.

McDade agreed with the Board and said the decision to postpone retirement was fairly easy.

"Never would I have envisioned that my final year at MPCS would include massive closures around the world," said McDade. "I do not want to add undue stress to the School Board or to the staff and students of Manassas Park."

McDade indicated that the innovative actions and selfless acts of service demonstrated at MPCS since the school closure further sealed his decision to postpone retirement.

"Our schools have been closed for one week," McDade said. "In that short time, I've seen teachers and staff go into overdrive. They have always done great work for the children of Manassas Park, but in light of a closure, they have set the bar high for what great education and community stewardship is and can be. It's an honor to be asked to serve with them for another year. I hope the current situation returns to normal soon, and I hope to see them in person each day next year."
