At its July 1 meeting, the Board of Education unanimously appointed Dr. Kathleen Sottile to the position of superintendent of schools, effective September 1, 2019. Dr. Sottile is currently serving as assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction at Sewanhaka Central High School District for the past two years and served as principal at Floral Park Memorial High School for 12 years. Prior to her tenure with Sewanhaka, Dr. Sottile held assistant principal positions in Scranton High School and Delaware Valley High School in northeastern Pennsylvania. She will replace outgoing Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Dantona.
“After careful consideration, the Board realized the ideal candidate to move our district forward was already a fixture in the community,” Board of Education President Laura Ferone said. “Dr. Sottile is a proven leader and an outstanding educator. We are excited she agreed to return to the Floral Park-Bellerose family.”
