Senio’s hiring was approved 5-0 by the committee. Mayor James Fiorentini and committee member Joseph Bevilacqua did not attend the meeting.
Superintendent James Scully said the mayor interviewed Senio on a prior occasion and that Fiorentini supported the appointment.
“Her focus here is going to be improving how we evaluate kids and to help us get better at using a team approach,” Scully said.
Senio said she is from Massachusetts and that she is looking forward to moving back here with her husband, who is retired.
“We are coming home,” she told the committee. “We plan to be here for the long-term.”
The committee is also looking for a business manager to replace Kara Kosmes, the district’s assistant superintendent of finance who is leaving at the end of the school year for a similar position at Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School.
