CLYMER — The Clymer Central School District has found its next superintendent for the time being.

The Clymer School Board at a meeting Thursday approved Karen Krause as the interim superintendent under a three-month contract. Ed Bailey, who officially steps down as superintendent Sept. 30, announced his resignation at a Sept. 10 special school board meeting. The board unanimously approved a separation agreement between the school district and the superintendent.

Bailey cited a disagreement between the board’s vision of Clymer’s future and his own as the primary reason for resigning.

“It was better to part ways,” Bailey told The Post-Journal last week.

Krause comes to Clymer with previous superintendent experience in the Ripley Central School District. She retired in 2013 but was brought back on an interim basis in 2018 when the district’s superintendent at the time resigned.
