The new Franklin Regional administrative team is complete.
The Franklin Regional School Board Monday hired Andrew Leviski, 34, of Lower Burrell, as middle school principal. His start date has not been determined.
Leviski currently is principal at Springdale Junior/Senior High School. A former English teacher, he has been an administrator at the school for more than three years.
“He is a very good hire,” Board President Herb Yingling said. “He's a great guy and on step with everything we're doing here.”
Leviski is the final hire to the administrative team at Franklin Regional. During the past 18 months, the district has hired a human resources director, supervisor of technology, superintendent and assistant superintendent.
Leviski replaces Chris Kelly, who requested a transfer during the summer to teach health and physical education at the high school.
Leviski will earn a prorated salary of $100,000.
Shelley Shaneyfelt, retired director of curriculum and instruction, will continue to serve as interim middle school principal until Leviski is permitted to leave Allegheny Valley.

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.
