Plum starting job search for school superintendent in December
Applications to fill the Plum School District's superintendent post will be accepted Dec. 4 through Jan. 15.
The search is being conducted for the district by the Pennsylvania School Board Association, initially focusing on candidates from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland and New York.
“I'd like someone with knowledge of the Pennsylvania School Code and how Pennsylvania works,” said Plum school board President Kevin Dowdell. “Perhaps experience as an assistant superintendent at a larger school district or superintendent at a smaller one.”
The plan is to have a list of candidates by mid-January and to select a superintendent by the start of the school year in the fall, Dowdell said.
Superintendent Tim Glasspool resigned Oct. 1 following two tumultuous years in which he and other administrators came under fire for not doing enough to stop criminal sexual acts involving teachers and students. Three teachers are currently serving prison time for their involvement in the district sex scandal.
Assistant Superintendent Gail Yamnitzky has been acting as superintendent since the resignation.
