Chartiers Valley school board members last week approved hiring Quaker Valley administrator Jillian Bichsel.

Bichsel was hired as the district's director of professional development and curriculum leader for writing and assessment.

In the position, Bichsel will work to develop a writing program across all grade levels.

She will work with faculty as a writing coach and to better writing instruction in each subject area and will also provide student writing workshops.

Bichsel was hired in 2004 as middle school academic specialist. She later left for the Fox Chapel Area School District and returned in 2009 to Quaker Valley as director of academic services — the role she currently serves. Her salary is $110,010.

A salary for the Chartiers Valley job was not immediately known.
