At a special meeting on Monday, July 17, the Lindenhurst Board of Education announced its acceptance of the resignation of Superintendent Anthony Davidson, who had been appointed to the position the previous summer.

He will be on special duty until Monday, July 31st.

However, the board appointed Vincent Caravana to succeed him as the district’s acting superintendent on the final day of Davidson’s tenure and as interim superintendent thereafter.

In a statement, the Lindenhurst School District did not elaborate on why Davidson left, saying only:

“While we understand the community may have questions about this update, please understand that as this is a personnel matter and we wish to respect the privacy of all involved, further details cannot be shared publicly.”

The news comes after a school year at Lyndenhurst Middle School that included bomb threats and stabbings, prompting the district to increase the number of security personnel on campus and explore a partnership with a security company.

Davidson began his career as an English teacher in the Commack School District and then worked his way through various school districts on Long Island.

The new acting superintendent, Caravana, has been with the Lindenhurst School District since 2009, according to the board’s announcement.
