After two initial rounds of interviews and preliminary reference checks, Bonamo was one of the semi-finalists who came to the district for day-long interviews that involved more than 70 students, parents and teachers.
My recommendation to appoint Mr. Bonamo followed further reference checks, a visiting team journey to his school and a meeting with our Board of Education,” Superintendent Michael V. McGill said in a statement. “According to colleagues, parents and supervisors, he’s championed an education for the new century, upheld high standards for learning and behavior, and restored a sense of leadership.”
McGill said Bonamo “will bring energy, enthusiasm, a collaborative style and thoughtful intelligence to his work in Scarsdale. He is eager to take on his new responsibilities, and I’m fully confident that he’ll provide the High School with vision and leadership that will be consistent with the best Scarsdale tradition.”
Information about his start date was not immediately available.
