Seneca Valley found its new assistant superintendent for elementary education from within its ranks.
School board members promoted Monday night middle school principal Sean McCarty to the vacated post from Jeffrey Fuller's resignation. Mr. Fuller will become superintendent of the Freedom Area School District in Beaver County.
Mr. McCarty of Adams, who will be paid $117,000 in his new position, came to Seneca Valley 16 years ago as a special education teacher. He became assistant principal at Seneca Valley Middle School. He took on his most recent post in 2007.
His position temporarily will be filled by Andrea Peck, who is assistant principal at the middle school. Ms. Peck will receive a $1,000 stipend until a new middle school principal is hired. District communication director Linda Andreassi said the district hopes to have a new principal named before school begins.
School board members also promoted Sandra Krivak-Fowler to principal at Evans City Middle School. She had served as assistant principal, a position that was eliminated this year due to budget cuts.
Ms. Krivak-Fowler of Zelienople replaces Thomas Hallman, who retired this past month. She was the assistant principal for two years and had previously been a principal in the Franklin Regional and Plum Borough school districts. She also has worked as an assistant professor at Robert Morris University. She will be paid $97,000.
Jeffrey Roberts was named assistant principal of the Seneca Valley Cyber School for grades kindergarten through 12. He previously served as an assistant principal at the Seneca Valley Senior High School, another position eliminated this year due to budget cuts. Mr. Roberts will be paid $90,000.
School board members also hired an interim athletic director. Ms. Andreassi said the school board chose to not renew Greg Caprara's contract.
"We decided to go in a different direction," she said. Mr. Caprara's contract ends Friday and he has been with the district for eight years.
Retired teacher William (Wayne) Roccia was hired as interim athletic director. Mr. Roccia taught in the district for 34 years and had been a coach in track, cross country and football. He will be paid $250 per day.
