More Change in Pottsgrove's Administration

There's more administrative shuffling going on at the Pottsgrove School District.

Ann Myers, the director of pupil services, Pottsgrove has retired and the district has announced the hiring of Regina Carpenter as her replacement.

Carpenter, who will earn $127,500 per year, cannot start until Sept. 15 and Myers's retirement went into effect yesterday. 

So in the meantime, Barbara Burke-Stevenson -- who had been serving as the district's interim director of education and assessment the district hired Daniel Vorhis in April to fill the post permanently, now will fill in for Myers.

Burke-Stevenson, a retired New Hope-Solebury superintendent was hired in March, 2013 at a cost of $600 per day, to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Director of Education Todd Davies, who left to take a job as the new assistant superintendent of the Exeter School District.

She will now stay with the district until September.

Carpenter comes to Pottsgrove from the Bucks County Intermediate Unit where she has been serving as a Supervisor of Special Education overseeing numerous educational programs since 2008, according to a press release issued by the district.

Prior to working for the Bucks County Intermediate Unit, Carpenter most recently held the positions of Supervisor of Special Education for the North Penn School District, Supervisor/Principal at the County Alternative High School at the Delaware County Intermediate Unit and Principal of the Greenhouse School in Southhampton, PA.

Carpenter holds Pennsylvania certifications for Mentally or Physically Handicapped K-12, Supervisor of Special Education and Principal certification K- 12

But there's also another change in that office.

According to the district release, Pottsgrove will also begin the search to replace Michelle MacLuckie, supervisor of special education, who will be leaving her position effective July 17.

The district has contracted with the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit to employ Robin Boehning to serve as the interim supervisor of special education until such time that a permanent replacement has been identified.

The cost of that contract was not disclosed in the statement issued by the district.
