Center School District is pleased to announce that Mr. David Leone will be the new Superintendent, effective July 1, 2014 upon the retirement of Dr. Robert Bartman. Mr. Leone has been with Center School District for 26 years as a principal, central office administrator, and as the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources.

“It is my honor to announce that the Center School District Board of Education voted unanimously to appoint Mr. David Leone as the next Superintendent. The Board feels that Mr. Leone is uniquely qualified to lead Center forward. Dave's years of service to Center in a myriad of positions have him well prepared to take the next step in leading our district. We all know the love, care, and dedication that Dave has for Center School District and he has demonstrated it in numerous ways over the years. The Board looks forward to working closely with him to help keep the focus on academic achievement and high expectations for our students, exercising strong fiscal responsibility, and maintaining the importance of positive relationships with students, family members, patrons, faculty and staff,” said Joe Nastasi, Board President.

“This is the place where I’ve dedicated most of my career. I’ve seen such progress under our two previous Superintendents, Dr. David Smith and Dr. Bob Bartman, and I’ve seen what we can be and where we can go in the future. We have the Board, the students, the parents, the staff, and the administrators to reach our lofty and attainable goal of being a Top 20 District in 2020. I’m ready to help us meet that goal,” Mr. Leone said.
“I love Center School District. I have a tremendous passion for our schools and our students and the Center education community,” he also said.

Mr. Leone will begin his superintendent position this summer. Until then, the district is focusing on finishing a strong academic year.
