Bucci to resign as Pine-Richland superintendent effective Jan. 8

Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012, 12:34 p.m.
 

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.
