Superintendent Evaluation: According to the Pennsylvania School Code, districts’ school boards are required to develop mutually agreed upon objective performance standards for the superintendent and conduct a formal, written performance assessment of the superintendent annually. The objective performance standards are to be posted on the district’s website. At the end of the annual assessment period, the school board shall post the date of the assessment and whether or not the superintendent met the agreed-to objective performance standards.

Message from the Superintendent

 Greetings all,
In a few short weeks we will have just concluded another school year, and it seems like just yesterday we were beginning one. For us, summer is a tremendous time to slow things down, pause and reflect on the year in review and to consider the depth and impact of our collective accomplishments, our setbacks, and our student experiences. For us, looking back affirms our belief that being an educator is the best vocation of all, and creating an environment where students are passionately seeking new knowledge and dreaming about their future brings us significant joy.

We value our partnership with our families and the entire Shaler Area community. This year, we hosted more parent education workshops than ever before through our collaboration with our District Parent Council, which continues to grow in depth and strength, and we believe the connection we’re building with our families to be vitally important. Another focal point has been to reimagine what schools can be for all students. Our future-focused work incorporates concepts such as the portrait of a graduate, essential in preparing our students to face the evolving demands of an ever-changing workforce.
Also, cultivating partnerships with workforce, universities, and local businesses in the Western Pennsylvania region and beyond remain at the forefront of our mission, and we are certain these partnerships will yield amazing learning opportunities for our students.

We wish you all a phenomenal summer, full of meaningful time with family, adventures at home and away, and plenty of sunshine and relaxation. Please be safe and well until we begin once again on August 24.
