Pourby succeeds Eben Bullock as junior/senior high school principal. Bullock, who served in the position for 10 years, is Sidney’s new superintendent. 

“The Sidney Central School District is excited to have Mrs. Lori Pourby join our team as the next junior/senior high school principal,” Bullock said. “Mrs. Pourby brings with her years of experience both at the building and district levels. She is excited to get started and continue to build upon creating opportunities for students.”

Pourby received her bachelors in elementary and early secondary education, with an English 7-9 extension from SUNY Cortland. She also received her master’s in reading from Cortland. Pourby also holds a CAS in building and district leadership, as well as being a graduate of the New York State Superintendent Development Program. 

“We are pleased to welcome Mrs. Pourby to Sidney Central School District,” Sidney Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction and Special Programs Kerrie Johnston said. “She brings with her extensive knowledge and experience as a teacher and administrator. We welcome her to our school community."

Pourby and her husband Mike, who teaches science in the Binghamton City School District, have three daughters. Two daughters are in college and one is in middle school. They live in Binghamton.

She said she is excited to get going, especially taking over at the junior/senior high school level.

“I believe all students should be provided with a safe opportunity for learning,” she said. “I am excited to work collaboratively with our community to get our students college or career ready; to prepare them for their future.”
