It is with mixed emotions that I announce that our Intermediate School Principal, Mr. Kevin Swartz, has
accepted the position of Superintendent in the Naples Central School District. Mr. Swartz has done a
remarkable job as the VIS principal since 2014. He is one of those rare leaders who is able to manage
the intricacies of the big picture educational system without sacrificing the important personal needs of
students, staff and parents. This multifaceted leadership style, along with a deep commitment to
always doing what is best for our children, is what makes him such an outstanding administrator.
Kevin will begin the next chapter of his career as the Superintendent in Naples at the end of December,
but his seven and a half years of extraordinary leadership at VIS will not soon be forgotten and will
serve as the groundwork for continued success in that building. I will have more information on the
District’s next steps regarding a hiring plan for this critical position by the end of November.
On behalf of the Board of Education, congratulations Kevin!
We are grateful for the tremendous impact you have made on our children.
