Longtime West Irondequoit School Superintendent Jeff Crane is retiring.
That word came Thursday from the school board, which notes that Crane has served that district for more than 21 years, including the last 15 years as Superintendent.
Crane will retire as of January 1, 2019.
Officials say Crane has overseen numerous projects including the implementation of full day kindergarten, and worked to foster long-term financial stability for the district.
He has also served as Chairperson of the Urban-Suburban Transfer Program Governance Committee
