LEWISBORO, N.Y. – The Katonah-Lewisboro Board of Education has appointed two new administrators.
Scott Persampieri has been named assistant superintendent for human resources, replacing Carol Ann Lee, who is retiring, and Nancy Kim will join the district as director of technology.
Persampieri comes to Katonah-Lewisboro from the Somers Central School District, where he has served as director of instructional services and personnel since 2006. In that capacity he oversaw all staffing, the recruitment and hiring process, administration of employee benefits, public relations efforts, data management systems, and labor relations with district bargaining units.
Prior to his job as director of instructional services, Persampieri served as assistant principal of Somers Middle School for six years. He has also held the roles of dean of students, supervisor, and teacher at schools throughout New York and Massachusetts since beginning his career in education in 1992. He has also coached track and baseball.
Persampieri will receive an annual salary of $185,000.
“I am eager to join the Katonah-Lewisboro school community and look forward to contributing to the great work that the District has been about,” Persampieri said.
Kim served as director of technology at a private organization in Manhattan for five years, prior to which she held teaching positions in Ossining, Albertson, and New York City.
In her most recent job, Kim led planning for all technology initiatives including infrastructure, staffing, training, evaluation, and budgeting,
Kim has presented lectures at Columbia Business School’s Demand for New Media Summit, has written for the New York City Mayor’s Library Project in conjunction with the Teachers College Reading and Writing Institutes, and has been published by Kluwer Academic Publishers, Student Motivation: The Culture and Context of Learning (Plenum Series on Human Exceptionality) for her research findings.
Kim's annual salary will be $155,078.
"I am thrilled to provide my expertise to forge Katonah-Lewisboro into a premier digital landscape where the seamless integration of contemporary technologies will enhance the needs of all students,” Kim said.
Previously, the responsibilities for both of these positions were combined within the position of assistant superintendent for human resources.
“Now our assistant superintendent for human resources can dedicate his full attention to that role, while our new director of technology will focus on working with teachers and administrators to advance student learning,” said school board President Mark Lipton “We look forward to having Mr. Persampieri and Ms. Kim join our team and believe that they will each bring positive contributions to the district.”
