Nick Migliorino stepping in to new post at NPS

NORMAN — Fondly staring at long-forgotten flip phones, cameras and more on a bookshelf adjacent to his desk, Nick Migliorino reminisced about these dusty technology artifacts — a 1984 Macintosh (now converted into a picture frame) and a Sony Mavica, which uses floppy disks.

Migliorino’s passion for technology is always at the forefront of his work ethic and intersects with his enthusiasm for quality education.

As Norman Public Schools’ new assistant superintendent of administrative services and chief of technology, Migliorino said he is ready for the opportunity to affect change. Being in charge of child nutrition, maintenance and the 2014 bond issue is a big job, but Migliorino said he is excited to be a part of a school district that values education.

“I’m not going to try to fill Roger Brown’s shoes. I’m just going to go out and buy a new pair,” Migliorino said.

Migliorino has taken over Roger Brown’s position as NPS assistant superintendent of administrative services. Brown retired this summer and plans to move to Texas to be with family.

Migliorino previously worked as NPS director of secondary schools from 2008 to 2012. Then he went into the private sector as co-founder and later CEO of School Connect from 2012-2014. He also was a math teacher and coach at Irving Middle School from 1994 to 1997.

Migliorino’s 20-year career also includes administrative positions with Moore, Tahlequah and Putnam City public schools. He earned his bachelor’s degree in education from East Central University in Ada, his Master of Education from the University of Central Oklahoma and his doctorate from the University of Oklahoma.

“From being a teacher to where I am now, the hardest thing is that I love being around kids and families. But in this position, I have the opportunity to affect more kids,” Migliorino said. “I can cast a broader net.
