Starting Monday, Scott Bischoping will be the interim superintendent for Albion Central Schools.
He was appointed by the Board of Education to lead the district until Jan. 1, 2021.
“On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to officially welcome interim superintendent Scott Bischoping to the Albion Central School District family,” said Kathy Harling, Board of Education president. “We are excited to have Scott on board and look forward to working with him over the course of the next several months while we search for our next superintendent of schools.”
Bischoping has experience as an administrator. He most recently filled in as interim superintendent at North Rose-Wolcott and prior to that at the Batavia City School District. Scott is the former Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES district superintendent, retiring in July 2019. He previously served in Livonia Central School District for 25 years in many different capacities, including superintendent, business education teacher, high school principal, and director of instruction. He earned his master’s degree and certificate of advanced study in education administration from the College at Brockport.
“I look forward to meeting and working with the Albion school community,” said Bischoping. “I have heard wonderful things about the staff, students and families here.”
Bischoping replaces Michael Bonnewell, who will continue on in the district through June 2021 as a teacher evaluator.
“The board would like to recognize Mike Bonnewell as he transitions to the new role of independent teacher evaluator,” Harling said. “We thank Mike for his service and commitment to our district and its students, and wish him well in his final year at Albion Central School District. Mike’s knowledge of our district and its educators will be an asset in this role, and we’re excited to see him take on this new challenge.”
The Board of Education has hired Dr. Thomas Ramming and Dr. Theresa Lawrence to lead it through a search for the next superintendent. The goal is to have someone in place by Jan. 1..
