On Wednesday, the Sag Harbor Board of Education unanimously appointed Katy Graves as the district’s next superintendent of schools, effective July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2017.

“Selecting a superintendent is one of the most important responsibilities of any board of education,” said school board President Theresa Samot. “After an extensive and thorough search, Katy was selected from among a pool of more than 55 highly competent candidates. We are extremely confident that she possesses the professional vision, administrative experience, character and interpersonal communication skills to successfully lead our school district to the next level of success.”

Prior to the selection of the next superintendent, the district’s professional search firm met with more than 150 stakeholders, including district administrators, staff, parents and community residents. “During our interview process,” Samot said, "it was apparent Katy was the clear choice as our next superintendent.”

"I would like to thank the board of education for their vote of confidence,” Graves said. “I look forward to working with the administrators, staff, students and their families and community residents. Together, I am confident we can achieve an even greater level of excellence for all students. I’m also anxious to meet with students and hear about their goals for the future.”

Prior to serving in her current position as superintendent of schools in the Stamford New York Central School District, Graves served as assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction at the Windham-Ashland-Jewett Central School District. She possesses a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in school leadership from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, a Master of Science in health education from Sage Graduate School, N.Y., and a Bachelor of Science in home economics/clinical dietetics from SUNY Oneonta.

The members of the Sag Harbor Board of Education extended their appreciation to Interim Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carl Bonuso for his professional leadership and dedicated service to the school district and community during these past two years.
