Sachem Central School District Names New School Transportation Supervisor
The Sachem Central School District is proud to announce the appointment of Joseph Cervone as the new school transportation supervisor following the retirement of the district’s previous school transportation supervisor, Stephen Shadbolt, after 14 years of dedicated service to the district. 

Mr. Cervone joined the district on Aug. 13 from Eastern Suffolk BOCES, where he served as the transportation specialist. Prior to his current position at BOCES, Mr. Cervone served as the site and fleet supervisor for Montauk Bus, where he managed three yards and an expansive fleet of 400 buses in the New York metropolitan area. Throughout his career Mr. Cervone has displayed a vast knowledge of school bus safety, 19A driver requirements, regulatory compliance, vehicle maintenance, efficient routing and the ability to manage the requirements of special-needs students.  

To ensure a smooth transition this summer, Mr. Shadbolt will assist Mr. Cervone on a part-time basis as he becomes familiar with the inner workings of the Sachem Transportation Department. 

“Following our extensive screening process led by a committee composed of numerous district office administrators, [we found that] Mr. Cervone possessed the safety expertise, transportation experience and the leadership ability that made him the ideal candidate for this supervisory position,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Graham said. “It is an honor to welcome Mr. Cervone to the Sachem family.”
