Revere Local’s Abby Kassel to Succeed Dr. Christine Kovach

as Director of Student Services

Kovach to Retire in January



(November 20, 2018) ­– The Revere Board of Education accepted the retirement tonight of Dr. Christine Kovach, who has held the position of Director of Student Services for the district since 2012.  The Board then appointed her successor, Abby Kassel, who has served as Revere’s Coordinator of Special Education since 2015. 


“This will be a seamless transition, as Dr. Kovach and Mrs. Kassel have worked together in the same department for the past several years,” Montgomery said.  “They also have several more weeks together as a team to review any final details prior to the transition.  We wish Dr. Kovach the best in her well-deserved retirement.”


Dr. Kovach, who will retire in January, came to Revere in 2013 after serving ten years in the Chagrin Falls Village School District as the Director of Pupil Services.  Prior to that, she held a similar position in Canfield Local Schools.


Kassel previously worked in administration at the Portage County Educational Service Center.  She earned her undergraduate in hearing, speech and language services from Ohio University and her master’s degree in speech language pathology from the University of Akron.
