KENT COUNTY, Mich. — Ron Caniff has been named the new superintendent of the Kent Intermediate School District.

The announcement was made Tuesday night.

Caniff will succeed Kevin Konarska, who will retire June 30.

“We are confident that the transition from Kevin (Konarska) to Ron will be very smooth,” said ISD School Board President Claudia Bajema. “Ron will lead with the talent, energy and interpersonal skills that we have enjoyed for the past nine years under Kevin’s leadership.”

Caniff has served as superintendent of the Grandville Public School District since 2003 and led the Lapeer Community Schools for three years before returning to Kent County.  He also served as an assistant superintendent with Northview in Grand Rapids and a principal with the Forest Hills Public Schools.
