Blairsville-Saltsburg School District is searching once more for a new administrator -- to succeed current Saltsburg Middle/High School Principal Eric Kostic.
Kostic, whose resignation was accepted at Wednesday's school board meeting, said he has accepted a high school principal position at the Penn Hills School District, not far from where he grew up.
Kostic has served in his current assignment at Saltsburg since July 2004. He also completed a stint as Saltsburg's head football coach.
"I'm going to miss this place a lot," he told the B-S board. At Penn Hills, he will oversee a student population of about 1,600 compared to 420 enrolled at Saltsburg Middle/High School.
Board members wished Kostic well in his new position.
His departure date was yet to be determined.
In other personnel matters, the school board approved a leave of absence, on intermittent days as needed, for Bonnie Bell, a paraprofessional at Saltsburg Elementary School. Adam Dowdrick was promoted from part-time to full-time custodian at Blairsville Middle School.
Alice Moore was named the drama director at Blairsville High School.
