YONKERS, N.Y. -- The Yonkers Board of Education has selected Michael Yazurlo, a former Tuckahoe schools superintendent and Yonkers principal, as interim superintendent of Yonkers Public Schools, according to a Tweet from the City of Yonkers.

The Tweet read, "@MayorMikeSpano welcomes BOE selection of former principal, Dr. Michael Yazurlo, as Yonkers' interim Superintendent of @YonkersSchools."

Yazurlo will be replacing former Superintendent of Schools Bernard P. Pierorazio, who announced his retirement on Jan. 17.

Spano issued the following statement about the appointment:

"I welcome the Board of Education Trustees’ selection of Dr. Michael Yazurlo as Yonkers’ interim Superintendent of  Yonkers Public Schools. Dr. Yazurlo joins the District with over 40 years of experience as an educator and administrator, including his time as a principal in Yonkers Public Schools. While we still are dealing with the aftermath of the District’s $55 million overstatement, I look forward to Dr. Yazulo working with our Trustees in moving Yonkers Schools forward and focusing our attention on providing the best education to Yonkers students."
