Peters Township School District's superintendent, Nina Zetty, has been named the new superintendent of Gateway School District.
The Gateway Board of Directors hired Zetty at their school board meeting on Wednesday night. The directors gave Zetty a unanimous 9-0 vote.
Zetty has been the superintendent of Peters Township School District since 2008. Prior to that she served as the district's assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction and assessment—starting in 2006.
She also served as Bentworth High School principal in 1998 before being promoted four years later to assistant to the superintendent of Bentworth School District, also located in Washington County.
Zetty was also the instructional principal at Keystone Oaks High School and was a teacher for eight years at Jefferson-Morgan School District in Greene County.
A life-long learner, Dr. Zetty earned her B.S. and M.Ed in Secondary Education and Computer Science from the California University of Pennsylvania, and her Ed.D from the West Virginia University. Her Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility is from Duquesne University.
"I am honored to be selected as Gateway School District’s next Superintendent of Schools. I look forward to working with another outstanding administrative team and staff focused on improving student achievement," Zetty said in a statement.
"We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Zetty to the Gateway family of schools," said Dave Magill, board president. “Our extensive search with PSBA (Pennsylvania School Boards Association) yielded many fine candidates, but Dr. Zetty stood out among the group. Her experience and leadership coupled with her proven ability to increase academic performance across the board is why we choose her to pilot Gateway.”
Zetty is expected to begin her tenure with Gateway School District after she is released from her duties at PTSD, this according to contractual agreements.
Zetty is a resident of Brownsville, Fayette County where she resides with her husband, John. She has two grown children and three grandchildren.
