In mid-April, the South Colonie Board of Education appointed Christopher Robilotti as Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Safe Schools.
Robilotti will continue his career with the district after serving as principal at Colonie Central High School (CCHS) for the past six years. In his role, he managed day-to-day school operations, directed academic programming for 1600 students, and provided support and leadership to more than 200 staff members. Prior to his role as building principal, Robilotti served in various capacities at CCHS including associate principal (2009-2014), 9th-grade dean of students (2006-2008), and as a social studies teacher for grades 7-12 (2002-2006). After graduating from CCHS in 1996, Robilotti also worked as a seasonal employee for the school district for many years supporting the grounds and maintenance department.
“We are pleased to welcome Mr. Robilotti as Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Safe Schools,” said Board of Education President Edward Sim. “In the time he has been in the district, he has already been successful in building relationships and developing a deep appreciation and respect for the community that we serve. His ability to provide leadership to students and staff in the challenging landscape posed by the pandemic further illustrates his capabilities to excel in his new role.”
Robilotti earned a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master in Secondary Social Studies Education from State University at Albany, and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. He holds the following NYS certifications: Social Studies 7-12, Coaching, School Administrator and Supervisor, and School District Administrator.
“I am honored to have been selected by the Board of Education to serve as Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Safe Schools,” Robilotti said. “The South Colonie staff do a great job of supporting the learning and safety needs of all of our students and I look forward to working alongside them in a new capacity.”
Robilotti is replacing Dr. David Perry who was appointed as superintendent of schools in March. Robilotti will begin his new assignment on July 1. The district has already begun the search for his replacement.
