Spotlight Story: District Embarks on Superintendent Search (Survey Request Below)

As part of the process in selecting the next superintendent for the school district, the Wissahickon Board of School Directors hired a national search firm, Ray and Associates, Inc., of Cedar Rapids, Iowa to assist them in the search for the district’s next Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Jon Rednak and Dr. Edward Albert are heading the search team for the district.

The Wissahickon Board of School Directors is seeking community input regarding the selection of the school district’s new leader. The announcement of this aspect of the superintendent search and the existence of this online survey will be conveyed to all District families through the District’s “School Messenger” service on July 1, 2014.

This online survey is located here. The online survey asks the participants to select, not in any order, the ten leadership characteristics that are critical for the new superintendent to have and maintain. There is also a section for individual comments on the search, potential candidates and the desired characteristics of the school district’s future leader. The results of the survey will be provided to the Board of School Directors and will be considered by the Board in the process of identifying potential candidates and considering candidates for the position of Superintendent of Schools. The online survey will be available until 8 a.m. on August 7, 2014. For additional information regarding the survey, please contact:

                        Dr. Jon J. Rednak
                        Regional Search Director
                        Ray and Associates
                        717-951-3064

The Wissahickon Board of School Directors encourages community input during this important process and requests that community members participate in this online survey.

Dear Blue Bell Families and Staff, I hope this email/letter finds you enjoying summer and this beautiful weather. My purpose in writing to you is to share information about plans for Blue Bell Elementary School for the 2014-15 school year. First, I know you will join me in thanking Dr. Sanni for his outstanding service to Blue Bell Elementary School last semester. I was grateful that he was able to assist us last year while Mrs. Fagan was out. To date, Mrs. Fagan is still out on leave. Therefore, for the upcoming school year, Dr. Concetta Lupo will be the acting principal at Blue Bell Elementary School. For consistency, Dr. Lupo will be serving as principal for the entire school year. She has extensive experience as an elementary principal, most recently as the Principal of Mattison Avenue Elementary School. She has additionally served as a teacher, Reading Specialist, Staff Developer and Director of Elementary Programs. I know you will join me in welcoming her to Blue Bell Elementary School. Dr. Lupo will be available at Blue Bell Elementary School as of July 23, 2014. My thanks to all of you as we have worked through this transition. Please continue to enjoy summer and I look forward to a great year at Blue Bell Elementary School. Sincerely, Judith M. Clark Superintendent of Schools
