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.
