The North Babylon School District Board of Education is proud to announce that, after an extensive search which included community feedback, it has found its next educational leader. During the Jan. 26 board meeting, veteran superintendent Dr. Kenneth Graham was appointed superintendent of schools, effective March 6.

Since 2020, Dr. Graham has served as superintendent of the Locust Valley Central School District, and for the four previous years as superintendent of the Sachem Central School District. Prior to rising to the ranks of superintendent of schools, Dr. Graham spent the first 19 years of his career in the Long Beach Public School District serving in various roles, including assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction and director of science, K-12. He began his career in education as a science teacher at Long Beach High School.

Currently, Dr. Graham serves as an adjunct faculty member in the Stony Brook University Educational Leadership program and has held leadership positions in both the Nassau and Suffolk County superintendents associations.

“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Graham to our school community,” Board of Education President Matthew Lucchetti said. “He has established himself as a strong leader, a child-first educator and a visible presence in the communities he has served. His previous experience, coupled with his vision for our schools, will lead our district on a path of even greater opportunities for our students and staff. On behalf of the entire board, I welcome Dr. Graham and congratulate him on his appointment.”

Added Dr. Graham, “I look forward to meeting with the members of the school community and developing common goals that the entire North Babylon School District community can work toward. These goals will be the roadmap to delivering results for our students’ academic and social and emotional advancement. I look forward to becoming a part of the community and getting to know the staff, students and parents.”

Dr. Graham earned his Bachelor of Arts in earth and space sciences, his master’s degree in liberal studies, and a certificate in School District Administration from Stony Brook University. He is a graduate of the doctoral program in educational leadership, administration and policy at Fordham University, where he studied tracking and acceleration practices in suburban secondary schools.
