Yonkers school board chooses superintendent
Former Deputy Superintendent Dr. Edwin Quezada was unanimously chosen Monday by the Yonkers Board of Education to lead the fourth-largest school district in the state.
The selection follows the sudden resignation of Dr. Michael Yazurlo.
Yazurlo's announcement came just a day after Yonkers police seized computers from the Board of Education, looking for possible unauthorized use of machines and cable services.
In 2014, Superintendent Bernard Pierorazio left the district after a $55 million accounting error was discovered. Yazurlo then took over.
Dr. Quezada will serve as superintendent until the end of the school year.
The Yonkers Board of Education has not ruled out conducting a national search to find a permanent replacement.
