Message from Superintendent of Schools, Andrew Selesnick

June 16, 2017

Dear KLSD Families,

As has been my practice, I like to keep the community informed of significant District news. To that end, in recent weeks, we have had several announcements regarding key leadership positions. They are as follows:

At last night’s Board of Education meeting, our Board accepted the retirement of John Jay Middle School Principal Rich Leprine, effective June 30, 2018. Mr. Leprine, who is now completing his fifteenth year of leadership in our District, has given us a full year’s notice so that we can devote significant time to finding the next principal to guide JJMS. That person will begin in the summer of the 2018-2019 school year. My thanks to Mr. Leprine both for the service he has given so far and for the thoughtful timing of his announcement.

At our June 1, Board of Education meeting, the Board accepted the retirement of JJMS Assistant Principal Lisa Kor, effective June 30, 2017. Ms. Kor leaves our District after providing 21 years of dedicated service at both JJMS and JJHS. For her service, we are grateful. With Ms. Kor’s retirement this year and Mr. Leprine’s next, we will be working to form a new leadership team to join with current JJMS Assistant Principal Monica Bermiss.

At the same June 1 Board of Education meeting, our Board reappointed David Feller as our Interim Director of Special Services for the 2017-2018 school year. Mr. Feller has provided outstanding guidance and leadership in the area of special education this year, and I am thrilled that he will be with us for another year.

Also at the June 1 Board of Education meeting, our Board appointed a new Assistant Principal for John Jay High School, Samir Biswas. Dr. Biswas is an experienced science educator who has worked as a teacher and administrator in several schools. In the coming year, he expects to complete his doctorate in science education at Teachers College, Columbia University.

And finally, at the end of this year, Tony Ramos, Assistant Principal at JJHS for the past three years, will be leaving us to pursue new endeavors. We thank Dr. Ramos for his service and wish him all the best.

School leadership is an ever evolving, always interesting, always challenging, and uniquely rewarding field. My deepest appreciation to all those who accept this responsibility on behalf of the students and staff of the Katonah-Lewisboro School District.

Just before we head into the final week of this school year, I wish all our families a wonderful weekend, and a very happy Father’s Day.

Sincerely yours,

Andrew Selesnick

Superintendent of Schools
