| Monday, June 9, 2014, 12:57 p.m.

Outgoing Quaker Valley Superintendent Joseph Clapper has been named as assistant executive director for the Pennsylvania Association of Elementary and Secondary School Principals.

The nonprofit organization, located near Harrisburg, offers support to school administrators with an emphasis on elementary, middle and high school principals, according to its website.

Clapper, who is retiring from Quaker Valley, is scheduled to begin working for the group in August.

He will be responsible for advocacy work for the association; providing assistance to members via professional advice and referring legal matters; and assisting with professional development needs for members.

Quaker Valley School Board members last week approved hiring Assistant Superintendent Heidi Ondek as the district's superintendent. She will assume her new role on July 1.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
