The Winooski School Board voted 4-1 on Wednesday to offer Champlain Valley Union High School Principal Sean McMannon the Winooski School District superintendent position, according to Search Consultant Bob Stevens.

The Winooski School Board interviewed McMannon April 4 in executive session, after he visited the school to meet with students, staff and parents. The board voted during its regular board meeting on Wednesday, after the Observer’s press deadline.

Winooski School Board President Michael Decarreau said McMannon became one of the finalists by “showing the characteristics we were looking for… leadership, vision and general demeanor.”

McMannon was the lone finalist for the job. A second final candidate for the position, Yutaka Tamura, decided to drop out of contention at the end of March.

McMannon has been CVU’s principal since April 2005.

“He’s got great background,” Stevens said. “He’s a class act and highly commended by people in his reference checks.”

McMannon could not be reached for comment before press deadline.

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
