MERCERSBURG, Pa. - The superintendent of Tuscarora School District has told the school board he will be leaving in January to take a job with Temple University's campus in Harrisburg, Pa.

Thomas Stapleford said Wednesday that the opportunity before him is exciting, especially the chance to get back into a classroom.

"I'm probably going to be teaching a couple classes a semester," Stapleford said. Otherwise, he will oversee educational programs at the campus, which offers master's and doctoral degrees for 400 students who are primarily adults.

Stapleford, who joined the district in June 2003, received a doctorate in educational administration from Columbia University. While there, he emphasized educational law in his studies and wants to take that knowledge to the students in Harrisburg.

The Tuscarora School Board will use services from the Pennsylvania School Boards Association to obtain a new superintendent, according to Stapleford.
