Dr. David Foley has been tapped to serve as Pine-Richland School District's interim superintendent starting Jan. 9.
The assistant superintendent is filling the shoes left empty by effective Jan. 8 after the Pine-Richland School Board notified her that it would not renew her contract when it expired June 30.
The Pine-Richland School Board voted unanimously Monday to name Foley to the post and adjust his annual salary to $125,000 while the district searches for a new superintendent.
The Pine-Richland School Board is consulting with the Pennsylvania School Board Association in the search for a new superintendent.
Foley said after Monday's meeting that he is not interested in vying for the superintendent's job on a permanent basis.
As assistant superintendent, he works on curriculum, instruction and assessment, he said.
"I love doing that and want to continue," said Foley, who started working for Pine-Richland in 2009.
Foley previously served as the principal of Hillview Intermediate Center and the assistant principal of George Junior Republic School in the Grove City School District.
From 2001-2003, Foley served as a technology facilitator at Seneca Valley Intermediate High School. From 1994-2001, he served as a social studies teacher at Seneca Valley Middle School.
He earned an Administrative and Policy Studies Doctorate and an Instructional I Teaching Certification from the University of Pittsburgh, a Principal Certification from Slippery Rock University, a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Gannon University and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Westminster College.
