Foley named interim superintendent at Pine-Richland

Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012, 2:18 p.m.
 

David Foley will lead Pine-Richland School District while school directors seek a new top administrator.

Foley, 43, of Grove City, Mercer County, is a father of three children, with a doctoral degree in administrative and policy studies from the University of Pittsburgh.

Pine-Richland School Board unanimously appointed Foley as interim superintendent — effective Jan. 9 — at its Dec. 17 meeting.

The school board also boosted Foley's salary to $125,000.

“I really appreciate the opportunity,” said Foley, the district's former assistant superintendent. “I look forward to helping the board choose a new superintendent, and keeping the ball rolling.”

Foley became assistant superintendent of Pine-Richland School District in October 2009.

He previously was principal at Hillview Intermediate Center in Grove City School District, Mercer County, and assistant principal of the same school district's George Junior Republic School.

Foley first taught social studies — from 1994 to 2001 — at Seneca Valley Middle School in Jackson Township, Butler County.

He then became technology facilitator — from 2001 to 2003 — at Seneca Valley Intermediate School.

Foley is replacing Mary Bucci, who resigned Nov. 26 after Pine-Richland School Board voted 5-3 in October to seek other candidates for the job. Bucci's contract was set to expire June 30. Her last day of work is Jan. 8.

Last month, Pine-Richland School Board hired the Pennsylvania School Boards Association to lead a search for the district's new superintendent.

Meetings to gather public input for the search will be held Jan. 14 at sites and times to be announced, according to Peter Lyons, president of Pine-Richland School Board.
