The Board of Education awarded tenure to three staff members at their meeting on April 18. The tenure recipients were Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations Diane Castonguay, Northwest Elementary School instructional coach Lorie Beard and Northeast Elementary School instructional coach Theresa McCormack. Superintendent Dr. Mary T. Kelly recommended them for tenure. 

Ms. Castonguay came to the district three years ago after working in the private sector as a certified public account and then as a school district treasurer. She oversees all financial operations and the development of the annual budget, along with facilities, transportation and the school lunch program. Dr. Kelly cited the outstanding job she has done in Amityville.

Ms. Beard and Ms. McCormack support teachers at their respective buildings with instructional and technology needs. They have helped to implement the Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Project workshops. Dr. Kelly said they are both highly respected among the faculty.
