GCSD community mourns the loss of longtime administrator and teacher

Dear GCSD Families,Demian Singleton

It is with tremendous sorrow that we inform you of a loss to our school community. On Monday, Oct. 18, Dr. Demian Singleton, a longtime teacher, administrator and colleague, passed away.

Dr. Singleton had a long and outstanding career at the Guilderland Central School District. He joined the district in 1996 as a seventh grade science teacher at Farnsworth Middle School, later becoming an Instructional Administrator for Math, Science and Technology, and then Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction.

“We are profoundly saddened by the passing of Dr. Singleton. Not just a colleague, but a friend as well, Demian touched every corner of GCSD. His vision, commitment, and unparalleled work ethic has helped shape Guilderland into the institution it is today. Demian made a real difference, which is something we all aspire to do. He will be greatly missed,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Marie Wiles.
