Bucci to resign as Pine-Richland superintendent effective Jan. 8
Mary Bucci has resigned as superintendent of Pine-Richland School District. Bucci's last day of work will be Jan. 8.
Pine-Richland School Board unanimously accepted Bucci's brief resignation letter — dated Nov. 26 — during the board's Dec. 3 reorganizational meeting.
“This letter is notice of my intent to resign from my position as superintendent of schools for Pine-Richland School District at the close of business on Jan. 8, 2013,” Bucci wrote. “I will be retiring from public education at that time.”
School director Peter Lyons, the board's newly elected president, announced Bucci's departure at the Dec. 3 meeting.
Lyons made the motion to accept Bucci's resignation, with thanks “for her long service to public education, and wishing her well in retirement.”
Bucci, 64, of Cranberry, joined Pine-Richland School District in 2007 as an assistant superintendent. She became superintendent in 2009.
Bucci previously worked for the New Brighton School District in Beaver County.
Married 37 years, Bucci is the mother of three children in their 30s.
In October, Pine-Richland School Board voted 5-3 to seek candidates to replace Bucci. Her contract was set to expire June 30.
“The board will begin mapping out a plan for moving forward following this meeting,” Lyons announced at the Dec. 3 meeting.
Last month, the board voted to hire the Pennsylvania School Boards Association for help with the board's search for a new superintendent.

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.
