The Southmoreland School District is in need of a new business manager.

School directors accepted the resignation of Bill Salem from the position at Thursday's board meeting.

Salem had been on the job for about 18 months, replacing longtime business manager Bill Porter, who had retired.

The motion to accept Salem's resignation passed in a 7-2 vote. School directors Catherine Fike and Ken Alt voted against the motion.

“This is a tragedy,” Fike said, adding that she was one of three school directors who voted against Salem's hiring. “We have no choice but to accept this resignation, but it is truly sad that no one would pay attention. ... This is a tragedy, and we should be ashamed of what happened here.”

The board voted to seek an interim business manager with help from the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials, to begin the search for a permanent person for the position, also with help from the association, and to appoint Susan Dye, secretary to the business manager, as treasurer until a new business manager is hired.

Superintendent John Molnar said he would like to see a new business manager hired “as soon as we get a qualified individual.”
