The Southmoreland School Board has accepted the resignation of the district's business manager.

Bill Salem had been in the position for about 18 months, replacing long-time business manager Bill Porter, who had retired.

The board voted 7-2 to accept Salem's resignation. Directors Catherine Fike and Ken Alt voted against the motion.

“This is a tragedy,” Fike said, adding that she was one of three 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 will seek an interim business manager with help from the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials, then begin the search for a permanent hire. Susan Dye, current secretary to the business manager, will be appointed treasurer until a new manager is hired.

Superintendent John Molnar said he would like to see the position filled “as soon as we get a qualified individual.”
