The Long Beach Public Schools has appointed Christopher Malone as Transportation Supervisor, to start on May 2, based on his background experience in holding similar roles within other school districts. Mr. Malone will manage the District’s $6 million transportation department.
Mr. Malone previously served as the Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s Assistant to the Superintendent for Health, Safety and Transportation. During this time, he managed the bus scheduling and operations through two changes in school starting times during two consecutive years for students in all seven school buildings along with the routing changes due to the closing of the Kindergarten center and the addition of a kindergartner at 4 elementary schools. He completed an in-depth audit of the transportation department’s routes and contractual agreements that ultimately resulted in significant cost savings for the District. He was responsible for bus schedules and routes, contract development and staff management and training.
Prior to his role in Plainview-Old Bethpage, Mr. Malone was Director of Facilities in the Rocky Point Union Free School District and Director of Facilities, Operations and Transportation in the East Williston Union Free School District.
