Kehoe is a certified public accountant and past president of the New York State Government Finance Officers Association.
"I am very excited about the appointment and eager to continue my work at BC," Kehoe said. "Clearly dealing with the impacts from the economy will continue to require great attention. The budget preparation process will require considerable input from the community, as we work to create a responsible financial plan that provides the highest quality of services to our students."
Kehoe has recently overseen the district's entry into a regional energy consortium, which could help the district control energy costs by locking in energy prices and undergoing a thorough audit to ensure it spends only what it needs.
She is also overseeing efforts to ensure the district's compliance with federal regulations regarding 403(b) retirement plans.
The district has now posted Kehoe's former position of school business administrator and will be accepting applications through Tuesday, Jan. 20. District officials said they hope to fill the job by March 1.
"The coming year will be a challenging time, but also an opportunity to pool our collective talents and ideas to best respond to the issues at hand," Kehoe said.
