Skaneateles Resident Looks Forward to New Chapter as Middle School Principal

An experienced educator is coming home to serve as a Principal in the Skaneateles Central School District.
Michael Olley was recently approved by the Board of Education as the new Principal of Skaneateles Middle School. Olley has spent the past 25 years in the Liverpool Central School District, working in various roles as a teacher to an administrator. He is currently the Principal of Soule Road Middle School.
“We are so excited to welcome Mike Olley to our Skaneateles family as our new Middle School Principal,” said Eric Knuth, Superintendent of Schools. “Mike’s experience, student focus and commitment to building strong relationships will make him an excellent addition to our outstanding Middle School team.”
Five years ago, Olley and his family moved to Skaneateles. The school district’s high academic status and wide array of extracurricular activities were appealing to Olley as a community member and a father.  His three children are enrolled in the district and his wife is a Skaneateles Central School District alumna.
“This is a new beginning for me and I’m excited,” said Olley. “The opportunity to be in the same district where my family resides is huge.”
As Middle School Principal, Olley will look to build upon relationships he has already established in the community and will strive to connect with all Skaneateles students, teachers, staff, and community members.

“I’m definitely looking forward to getting to know the students and families in my new role as Principal,” said Olley.
Olley will start in his new role on Monday, August 8.
