Victor school board chooses Slavny, candidate for Ontario County Sheriff, to lead safety and security in district

Ontario County sheriff’s candidate Steven Slavny has a new job in the Victor school district.

The retired New York State Police sergeant says it won’t have any impact on his campaign for sheriff.

The Democrat was appointed to coordinator of district safety. In that role, improving safety and security at Victor campuses will be a top priority.

“The race continues,” Slavny told The Daily Messenger. “It makes my plate a little more crowded but the sheriff has to be able to juggle 12 balls and ask for three more.”

He’s been working in the Victor Central School District for the last nine years as a teacher aide, providing student safety and support by working closely with school security and its resource officer. The opportunity, when he took it, was an opportunity to mentor young people.

“Mr. Slavny’s ability to look at the security needs of a comprehensive school district from a big-picture view and then work collaboratively with the community to improve areas of need will have a major impact on the safety of everyone,” Superintendent Tim Terranova said of the move.
