At the Tuesday, January 10, 2017 meeting of the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda Union Free School District, the Board of Education unanimously voted to support the appointment of Steve Bovino as Interim Superintendent.
Steve recently retired from the Ken-Ton District after nine and a half years as Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources. Previous to coming to Ken-Ton, he served as Principal of John F. Kennedy High School in the Cheektowaga-Sloan District. He began his career in education as a teacher and later an assistant principal in the Williamsville Central School District. He also held a number of management positions in the private sector previous to his educational career.
Steve received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the College of New Jersey. He holds a Juris Doctor from the George Mason University School of Law. He received his administrative certification at SUNY Brockport. He also completed the Superintendent Development Program (SDP).
Steve is a Ken-Ton resident. Both of his children graduated from Kenmore West High School and both now live in Charlotte, North Carolina along with three grandchildren. Board President Jill O'Malley stated, “We are thrilled to have Steve aboard – the opportunity for a seamless transition to an interim is unique and something we are very grateful for. While he understands our superintendent search is a short-term priority, he has also recognized the immediate need to reaffirm a culture of support and collaboration for our school community. Through his years of service in Ken-Ton, Steve has gained the respect and trust of our employees; the Board has faith that he will do what's best for the children of this District. We appreciate his willingness to step up and we are looking forward to working with him over the next six months.”
