The Board of Education (BOE) voted unanimously (7-0) to appoint former Assistant Superintendent Anthony Buono as the Acting Superintendent of the Westport Public School District on April 8. Buono will begin on April 9.

 

“I’m honored to accept the position until [the BOE] is able to find a suitable replacement,” Buono said to BOE members.

 

Buono will serve as Acting Superintendent of Schools until the BOE employs an Interim Superintendent of Schools or a new Superintendent of schools, or through a duration mutually decided upon by Buono and the BOE.

 

“We are in fact looking for a interim superintendent of schools,” BOE Chair Member Mark Mathias said at the BOE meeting. “We don’t yet have a date for when that would occur.”

The BOE voted on three motions regarding Buono’s appointment, including approving the separation of former Superintendent Colleen Palmer from the BOE, appointing Buono and authorizing Buono to perform the responsibilities outlined in board policy.

 

The appointment of Buono follows Palmer’s leave of absence due to a medical emergency announced on March 25.

“On behalf of [the BOE],” Mathias said, “I want to thank [Palmer] for her dedicated service to the Westport Public Schools over the past three years.”
