The Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda school district is beginning a search for a new superintendent.
The district on Wednesday announced Superintendent Stephen A. Bovino intends to retire at the end of the school year in June. The Ken-Ton School Board over the coming months said it will work with Erie 1 BOCES and district staff, teachers and parents on a thorough and transparent search for Bovino's replacement.
The search process will start with the production of a candidate profile that highlights the qualities and experience stakeholders want in the next superintendent.
The School Board is asking Ken-Ton staff and community members to take an online survey coordinated by Erie 1 BOCES. A link is available at ktufsd.org/search, where the district plans to update the public on search progress. The survey is open now until Oct. 19.
Bovino, 65, took over from Dawn F. Mirand in 2017 after serving as interim superintendent for several months. He had recently retired as the district's assistant superintendent for human resources.
