Peters School Board Appoints Acting Superintendent

The current superintendent's last day is Nov. 30, 2012.

The Peters Township School Board appointed Dr. Joseph Dimperio Monday night as acting superintendent for up to one year.

Dr. Nina Zetty's last day as superintendent is Nov. 30, 2012.

This is not the first time Dimperio has been picked to be the district's acting superintendent. The former West Mifflin School District superintendent was also chosen to run the district in March 2008, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

The Gateway School District in Monroeville hired Zetty to be its new superintendent last month.

Look for more details on Peters Patch Tuesday morning.

Can somebody explain the meaning of a contract for these folks? Dr Zetty was considered by Gateway, while under contract to Peters. Apparently, she agreed to be a candidate. After due consideration, she was offered the post in Gateway, KNOWING she was under contract to Peters School District. And, she accepted the offer. Then, she went to the Peters School Board, asking for a release from her contract. If I have the sequence wrong, please help me out. If my sequence is right, then what value is the contract? What is the message to the students of Peters? It seems to be a message something like, "... yes, I made a commitment to Peters and signed a contract, but when something better came along, I chose to ignore my commitment, and accept another job elsewhere." How can our public school students be expected to abide by commitments, when the Administrators openly, and blatantly do not abide by their commitments? Sorry, an answer of "everybody does it," will not work.

I understand your confusion. Sadly in this case it seems that everyone in the township breathed a sigh of relief to see her gone without having to shell out money to get rid of her. Perhaps this time the school board will do a better job of hiring, after the last few disastrous choices they have made. Could we please not pick someone from Ohio, where school districts are run very, very differently. Also, lets try to stay away from superintendents out of districts that just don't resemble this one in any way. I'm not even going to mention, oh yes I am, how about a higher calibre of grad school attended. That's my wish list! But unfortunately, school boarder members sadly pay no attention to their constituents.
