The Office of the Superintendent-Catholic School Support Services has named Anthony Biscione as its new deputy superintendent. Biscione brings 31 years of experience in Catholic education to his new role of service to the elementary schools and academies in the Brooklyn Diocese.
In his new role, Biscione will work with Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, superintendent, in implementing the diocesan vision of Catholic education as expressed in Preserving the Vision as well as the strategic plan for the Office of the Superintendent-Catholic School Support Services. Both initiatives will capitalize on Biscione’s educational experience and leadership.
As an elementary school teacher for nine years and principal of Most Precious Blood, Long Island City, for 14 years, Biscione has experienced firsthand the successes and challenges inherent in both positions.
Since 2004, he’s served as the associate superintendent for curriculum in the Office of the Superintendent. During this time, Biscione implemented a vast array of workshops and conferences for administrators and teachers related to curriculum development and assessments. He has been an outstanding leader in providing resources for the new Common Core Standards, which are currently being implemented in our elementary schools and academies.
Having received his bachelor’s degree in communications and his master’s degree in education, administration and supervision from Fordham University, Biscione is currently a doctoral candidate in its Church Leadership Program. In addition, he also teaches in the Graduate School of Education at Fordham.
Biscione brings his educational experience and leadership to many national and state organizations, including the Interdiocesan Curriculum Committee for New York State and the N.Y.C. Department of Education, Division of Nonpublic Schools and 21st Century Partners in Learning.
Totally committed to the mission of Catholic education and to all that his new role will bring, Biscione said, “At this critical juncture for Catholic education in Brooklyn and Queens, I felt that the position of deputy superintendent provided an opportunity for me to enhance my skills and expertise beyond curriculum and instruction. As deputy, I feel that my vast experience and leadership can assist in furthering the goals and objectives of Preserving the Vision.”
