Superintendent search begins in Kenmore-Tonawanda district

After the unexpected retirement of Superintendent Dawn F. Mirand earlier this month, the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School Board named its former assistant superintendent, Stephen A. Bovino to step into the role on an interim basis last week.

Bovino  retired in September after 9 1/2 years in the role, but came back when Mirand announced January 5 that she would retire in five days.

A special work session will be held Thursday, beginning with an executive session at 5:30 p.m., followed by a public work session at 6:30 p.m., in the district's administration office, 1500 Colvin Boulevard.

The meeting is proposed to be an "informal" conversation about the next steps in the search for a permanent superintendent, according to Board President Jill Y. O'Malley.

She said that the board chose Bovino as an interim step because he is "best able to hit the ground running, hold this together and focus on selecting the next superintendent."
