Press Releases

The William Floyd School District has appointed Kathleen Keane to the position of Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Instruction and Administration.

Mastic Beach, NY, September 5, 2014 – The William Floyd School District has appointed Kathleen Keane to the position of Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Instruction and Administration, announced Paul Casciano, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools. She replaces Gordon Brosdal, who accepted the superintendency of the Mount Sinai School District.

Ms. Keane, who has served the William Floyd School District since the 2011-2012 school year as the Director of Student Information and Secondary Education, will report directly to Dr. Casciano and be an integral member of the district office senior leadership team. She will oversee all secondary instruction and administration for the district’s three secondary buildings – William Floyd Middle School, William Paca Middle School and William Floyd High School – which includes academics, career and technical education and more.

Among her myriad responsibilities are supervising the alignment, implementation and assessment of the sixth- through 12th-grade instructional programs; data assessment analysis; preparation of all mandated reports (local, state and federal); supporting the secondary instructional and administrative staff through the process of adapting to the Common Core; and much more. 

Keane brings nearly 20 years of educational experience to the position with past roles as a third grade teacher, a dual language program teacher, a director of enrichment programs, a curriculum specialist and most recently the Director of Student Information and Secondary Education at William Floyd, where she was responsible for the supervision and support of secondary educational programs and provided oversight for the districtwide data team.

“Kathleen has a wealth of experience in instruction and educational leadership,” said Dr. Casciano. “Her extensive background in various educational leadership roles makes her a true asset to William Floyd.”

“I am very excited to be serving the William Floyd School District in this new role,” said Ms. Keane. “I am looking forward to supporting our secondary schools as we continue the important work of ensuring that all of our students succeed.”

Ms. Keane earned her BS in Industrial Relations and Social Science from Pace University, her MA in Education and Instructional Technology from the Teachers College of Columbia University, and her School Building Leader and School District Leader certifications from the College of Saint Rose. She is currently pursuing her doctorate in Teaching and Learning at Hofstra University.
