District Appoints, Welcomes New Superintendent

The Bayport-Blue Point Board of Education has appointed Dr. Vincent Butera as the district’s new superintendent of schools. The appointment was made during a special meeting of the Board on October 2nd and was immediately followed by an informal meet-and-greet with district residents. Approximately 50 attendees, including community members and district staff members, were in attendance to welcome Dr. Butera to the district and speak with him about his vision for the schools.

“It truly pleases me and the Board of Education to announce the conclusion of our search for the district’s next superintendent of schools,” stated Board President James March during the meeting. Mr. March went on to provide a brief overview of Dr. Butera’s educational experience before signing the official contract documentation and concluding the meeting for the reception.

Just prior to his appointment, Dr. Butera stated, “I want to thank the Board of Education for this incredible opportunity. Bayport-Blue Point is a district that is well-regarded by its community and many on the outside, and I look forward to building upon this tradition of success by helping every child succeed to the highest level. My efforts are guided by my belief that schools must develop students who possess the social, emotional and academic skills to succeed beyond high school, and I certainly sensed that same commitment to ensuring student success from the Board of Education."
