Alexandra Casabona will be recommended as Assistant Superintendent for Student Support Services at Katonah-Lewisboro’s July 28 Board of Education meeting. Once appointed, her work would commence on August 22, 2022.

The new position, supported last spring by the BOE and by the community in May’s budget vote, will coordinate and oversee the services that students receive through Special Education, English as New Language, and Response to Intervention, among others. Casabona’s recommendation follows an extensive search process involving staff and community members.

“We are confident that Ms. Casabona will impress us with her deep commitment to serving the students and families of KLSD,” said Superintendent Andrew Selesnick.

dynamic leader who build positive relationships

Casabona is currently a Director of K-12 Special Education in the Mamaroneck Union Free School District. During her time there, she demonstrated dynamic leadership skills and a strongly held belief in building positive and trusting relationships with staff, students and their families. In addition to her Special Education responsibilities, Casabona supported a growing Dual Language and ENL program, which included the facilitation of professional development for parents. An additional asset to her work is the fact that she is fully bilingual.

Prior to her time in Mamaroneck, Ms. Casabona served as a Special Education teacher at both Westlake High School and Middle School. There, she taught in a variety of settings and designed differentiated instruction to meet the needs of her students.

Ms. Casabona received her Master of Science in Special Education from Adelphi University. She earned her professional diploma in Educational Leadership from Manhattanville College, where she has since begun her doctoral work in Educational Leadership.

“I am very excited to have been selected for this unique opportunity,” said Casabona. “I look forward to partnering with Katonah-Lewisboro School District as it continues to work to meet the changing needs of their school community in order to ensure that students with diverse learning styles and abilities have access to all the high caliber opportunities the district has to offer.“
