Statement from Superintendent Crumb

"My decision to retire has resulted after a great deal of reflection and sense that now simply feels like the right time,” Crumb said. “It has been an honor and privilege for me to devote my entire career to education, and for 38 years, the last six of which as superintendent of Spencerport, I have been humbled by the opportunity to ensure our community’s children have had a safe and inspiring learning environment for which to grow and succeed. For these accomplishments, I am truly grateful, and feel assured in my decision to retire and enjoy the years ahead with my family and friends."

"On behalf of the Spencerport Board of Education and our greater school community, I want to thank Mike for his dedication and commitment to our district,” said Gary Bracken, board president. “His impact on Spencerport has been immeasurable, and we appreciate his leadership and vision that continued to move our district forward and for always doing what is best for kids. We certainly wish Mike all the best in retirement."
