He has over twenty years of educational experience that includes district-level leadership in Pupil Personnel Services & Technology with the Carmel Central School District, Special Programs in the Pine Bush Central School District, and Special Education and Student Services in the Wappingers Central School District. Joseph has spent the last nine years dedicated to special education administration - supporting families in accessing the most appropriate programs and services to meet the individual needs of students. In addition to his professional experience, Mr. Simoni holds the following credentials/degrees:

    • B.A. in Social Sciences (Mount Saint Mary College)

Mr. Simoni will continue to provide leadership and oversight for the Department of Special Services throughout the search process. 

    Sincerely,
