Could New School Superintendent Be on Current Staff
The Souderton School district may promote from within to replace Superintendent Fred Johnson. The Board is scheduled to vote tomorrow night on a proposal to make Assistant Superintendent and Director of Pupil Services, Frank Gallagher, the new Superintendent. Fred Johnson recently announced that he accepted a education job in Erie, Pennsylvania.
Acting Methacton Superintendent Comes Out of Retirement
The New acting Superintendent of the Methacton School District Tuesday night attended his first school board meeting since his hiring last week. Doctor Jeffery Miller previously served the district as its Chief Administrator for nearly four years. He came out of retirement after former Superintendent, Timothy Quinn resigned last month amid allegations of an inappropriate relationship with another district employee. Doctor Miller says, the sudden departure of his predecessor doesn’t require any damage control.
“I think it’s an event that they’re all going to put behind them and move on. I don’t really think there’s been a lot of damage, at least not among the buildings with staff and kids.”
Doctor Miller will work on a per diem basis without benefits and earn 650-dollars a day while the school board looks for a permanent superintendent.
