The director of student services for the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit has been hired by the North Allegheny School District to serve as its director of student services.

The board voted unanimously to hire Joseph Sciullo to replace Guinevere Maximo, who is retiring in June.

Sciullo has a bachelor of science degree in special education from Clarion University as well as a master of science and doctorate degree in education from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va. He also holds a special education supervision certificate from the Pennsylvania State University and is currently enrolled at California University of Pennsylvania to obtain his Superintendent's letter of eligibility.

Sciullo began his career as a special education teacher for the Chesapeake Public Schools in Chesapeake, Va. He moved into a leadership role in administration as the district's special education supervisor followed by a position as an assistant principal.

In 2016, Sciullo accepted his current position with Westmoreland Intermediate Unit # 7.

A starting date for Sciullo has not bet set yet. He will earn $120,000 a year.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
