Hello Marathon Central School Residents:

What did John Malkovich do for a living before becoming a famous actor?  Just think- you could be the next John Malcovich if you learned how to drive a school bus!  Did you ever think about how you could transport our most precious cargo to and from school and on field trips?  Did you ever think about driving your children’s teams to and from sporting events and getting paid for it?

Marathon Central School is looking to hire bus drivers for regular and substitute positions.  We welcome certified (licensed) school bus drivers to apply, but we also want people to know that we will pay you for training to be a Marathon Bus Driver.

If you are interested in being considered for a driving position or even if you just have a few questions, please feel free to call Director of Transportation Mr. Andy Euson at (607)-849-3325 and set up an appointment.  Please note that there are certain requirements that must be met to be a school bus driver.


You could be the next Art Garfunkel.  He was teaching math when a song called Bridge Over Troubled Waters hit the charts.  He stopped teaching math after that, but did you ever think that you could start a new career after being a substitute teacher or substitute teacher’s aide or substitute teaching assistant?  If so, and you think you may be the next Billy Crystal (who started out as a substitute girls’ gym teacher), we invite you to apply to do so at the District Office.  Please call District Clerk Mrs. Heather Euson at (607)- 849-3117 for information or an appointment to discuss possibilities.  Please note that varying levels of education are required for each position along with a fingerprinting check.


Did you ever think of working as a substitute food service worker?  We invite you to call Director of Food Service Mr. Francis Zaryski at (607) 849-3149 to set up an appointment so that you just might become the next James Franco or Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson.


Did you ever think of working as a substitute cleaner?  If so, we invite you to call Director of Facilities Mr. Greg Meixner at (607) 849-3213 to set up an appointment.  Just like the lottery advertisements say, “You Never Know,” as famous former substitute cleaners include comedian Jim Carrey and author Stephen King.

Interim Superintendent & Former Cleaner & Former Bus Driver & Former Food Service Worker & Former Substitute Teacher

Dear Parents and Community Members:

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.

There have been many changes in the Marathon School District over the summer.  The buildings are being cleaned, supplies have been ordered and staff members have undergone training along with other staff development activities.

There have been administrative staffing changes as well.  Mrs. Stone has left Marathon in her role as Superintendent of Schools, and as of August 1 she has become the District Superintendent of the Broome-Tioga BOCES.  Mrs. Stone spent eleven years serving the Marathon School System, and we all wish her well in her new position.

The Marathon Board of Education is in the process of finding a new Superintendent of Schools, and in the mean time they have hired me to be the Interim Superintendent until a permanent one can be hired.  This is the usual protocol when someone leaves a district, as it gives extra time for the Board of Education to find the new Superintendent. Details regarding the search will be posted once the process is finalized by the Board and our consultant, Dr. Matt Cook of the Onondaga-Cortland BOCES.

I am a retired Superintendent with over thirty-five years of educational experience in the southern tier of New York state.  Since I retired and relocated to the Cortland area I have done several Interim jobs in this region.  I have been the Interim Elementary Principal in Tully, the Interim Elementary Principal in Cincinnatus and the Interim Superintendent of Dryden.

Please feel free to drop in or stop me on the street to say hello. 

We are also saying goodbye to our Jr-Sr High School Principal, Ms. Holly Marcolina, who has decided to pursue her doctoral studies at the University of Buffalo.  She will also teach undergraduate courses in education at U.B.  She wishes everyone well and asks her Marathon family to “stay in touch.”

Our new junior-senior principal is Mr. Jamie Coppola.  He went to St. Lawrence University for his undergraduate and graduate degrees in physical education. He then earned his administrative certification through SUNY Oswego.  He has been a physical education teacher in Central Square and has been both a middle and high school principal in Alomar-Parish-Williamstown (A-P-W). He was also the Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics at A-P-W.   We welcome Mr. Coppola to Marathon.
