The Board of Education met Tuesday evening, appointing Jennifer Rylott as interim superintendent through August of this year.

Shelter Island School Academic Administrator Jennifer Rylott was appointed interim superintendent of schools at Tuesday evening’s Board of Education meeting.

Ms. Rylott will hold the post effective July 28 through August 31, 2014.

The board also announced Tuesday the hiring of Tyler Clark to a 26-week probationary appointment as a night custodial worker effective July 23. The job comes with a salary of $37,416.
