WASB superintendent replacement could be announced in June

WAYNESBORO, Pa. The Waynesboro Area School Board has tentative plans to announce the newly selected superintendent of schools on June 3.

The board has been accepting interview questions submitted by the public. Those questions are to be posed to candidates during the process of hiring someone to replace former superintendent Barry L. Dallara, who retired at the end of last week.

Board President Stanley Barkdoll said he was unsure the number of questions provided to date.

"I assure you that any question submitted, once approved by our attorney, will be included in the list of suggested questions to be used by the board during interviews," Barkdoll wrote in an e-mail.

According to a preliminary schedule, the board was to begin interviewing candidates this week.

WASHS reclaims math from career center

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Area School Board on April 15 voted unanimously to bring math back from the Franklin County (Pa.) Career and Technology Center and teach it at Waynesboro Area Senior High School.


High school students enrolled at the career center were receiving their math education at the career center.

Board members said that math curriculum can better be aligned to district standards by teaching it locally. Also, they cited the possibility of boosting Pennsylvania System of School Assessment scores.
