South Allegheny Middle School to host conference

Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, 2:36 a.m.
 

South Allegheny Middle School will host the Pennsylvania Association of Middle Level Education's western region conference this year, Superintendent Wayne Gdovic announced at Wednesday evening's school board meeting.

The district has participated in the annual professional development conference for several years.

Gdovic congratulated the school's administration, staff and students for the achievements that attracted the conference to South Allegheny.

The association was established in 1975 as the Western Pennsylvania League of Middle Schools. It offers resources and information to educators and administrators.

The middle school twice has been named by the association as a “school to watch,” designating it as a high-performing school that challenges students and staff to make the most of education.

“Any opportunity to learn more is embraced,” Gdovic said. “Education is changing dramatically, and our staff is eager to learn. It's not just our students.”

Evidence of the changing face of education is the district's advertising for two technology positions to keep up with advancing programs. The board approved establishing jobs for a full-time network administrator and computer technician.

“We have a limited staff to maintain the technology we do have,” Gdovic said.

He pledged that the staff will continue to grow as classroom technology expands.
