The West Irondequoit CSD Board of Education appointed Ms. Mary Jo Nugent as Director of Transportation at Thursday night’s board meeting. She returns to our district in the same leadership role she held for three years from December of 2018 until early 2022. Ms. Nugent will replace Ms. Kathy Blair, who is retiring in mid-March.

“A committee of stakeholders interviewed several qualified candidates in January and we are very excited for Ms. Nugent's return,” said WICSD Assistant Superintendent for Finance, Mr. James Brennan, who oversees the Transportation Department and chaired the interview committee. “Her expert knowledge of routing, dedication to student safety and ability to problem-solve will once again serve our students, families and schools at a very high level. I would also like to thank Ms. Blair for her tireless service to our district, students and families.”

An East Irondequoit native, Ms. Nugent most recently served as a Routing & Logistics Specialist in Pinellas County, Florida. Prior to her first stint in West Irondequoit as Transportation Supervisor, she worked in transportation for the Gates Chili and Webster school districts. Ms. Nugent, who is also a NYS Certified Transportation Examiner, owns degrees from Monroe Community College and Niagara University.

A Greece Athena High School graduate, she is the mother of three grown children: daughter Marissa and sons Nick and Jimmy. Jimmy also works as a Laborer for West Irondequoit schools. 

Welcome back, Ms. Nugent!
