The North Hills School District has approved leadership changes at two of its schools.

Mary Grimm, who has served as principal at Ross Elementary School since 2016 will become the assistant principal at the middle school at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year.

Grimm has a master's degree in teaching and a principal's certificate from the University of Pittsburgh. She earned her bachelor's degree in business administration from Duquesne University. Prior to her career in education, she worked as a software trainer, instructional designer and project manager for a technology solutions company.

Before joining the district, Grimm taught for 15 years in the Blackhawk and Western Beaver school districts.

Jason Beall, who has been the assistant principal at North Hills Middle School since 2013, will become the principal of Ross Elementary School when classes resume from summer break in late August.

Beall earned a bachelor's degree in accounting and finance from Barton College in North Carolina. He holds a masters in secondary mathematics and an administration and supervision certificate from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Prior to coming to North Hills, Beall was an inclusion and mathematics teacher for the Howard County Public School System in Maryland. He also served as a mathematics teacher and school accountant and business manager for Baltimore City Public Schools.

“We are fortunate to have so many extraordinary administrative leaders who work diligently to inspire our students and staff to achieve their goals and continually improve themselves academically, socially and emotionally,” Superintendent Pat Mannarino said.

“I am confident that both Ross Elementary School and North Hills Middle School will continue to thrive under their leadership.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
