WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. --  The White Plains Board of Education announced Wednesday Joseph Ricca is its choice to be the district's new superintendent.

Ricca has been superintendent of the Elmsford Union Free School District for the last four years. If a site visit and contract formalities proceed as anticipated, Ricca will be appointed in May and start on July 1.

“We believe that Dr. Ricca’s experience, record of success and enthusiasm qualify him to provide outstanding leadership for the district," Rosemarie Eller, school board president, said.

Applications were received from 40 candidates in 10 states and after initial interviews with top candidates, the board narrowed the list and expanded the interview team. It included representatives from staff associations, parents, and the community.

“We wanted to include as many people as possible in the final interviews but were aware that we had to maintain confidentiality, or we would lose impressive candidates," Eller said.
