Baldwin-Whitehall technology director leaves district

| Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Tim Winner has resigned as Baldwin-Whitehall School District director of technology to take a similar position at Shadyside Academy.

He was in the position for 11 years.

“We've done some exciting things,” Winner said. “I'm sad to leave behind the initiatives we started, but I'm excited for the new opportunity.”

He played a role in the redevelopment of the Baldwin-Whitehall School District website this summer. Winner, 42, began his new position as the director of education technology at Shadyside Academy on Aug. 12.

He recently moved to Aspinwall. His children Abigal, 5, and Nicholas, 2, will have their tuition waived at Shadyside Academy.

“It's a good move for me and my kids,”' he said.

Kevin Fisher, first vice president of the school board, thanked Winner for his service.

New administration

A vote to select the Baldwin High School principal and J.E. Harrison Middle School assistant principal was set to take place at the Aug. 7 meeting but was postponed because council President Nancy Sciulli-DiNardo, and council members George Pry, Ray Rosing and Diane Kazour were absent.

The board was expected to vote at the last night's meeting. Check for an update.

Back to school

Families can expect to receive their back-to-school mailings with bus and homeroom information by Saturday.

Returning and new students must update information on Skyalert before they have complete access to Skyalert services this year.

Anyone who does not have Internet access and prefers paper copies of report cards can respond to a mailing sent out by the district over the summer.

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.
