The Peters Township Board of School Directors last night voted to appoint the Chester County Intermediate Unit under the direction of Executive Director Dr. Joseph O’Brien to oversee the district’s superintendent search.
Under the terms of the agreement, O’Brien will work in collaboration with Charles Mahoney, Executive Director of Intermediate Unit 1, to complete the search.
Other superintendent searches overseen by O’Brien and the Chester County team are: Garnet Valley School District, Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, Owen J. Roberts School District and the Radnor Township School District.
“This team of Dr. O’Brien and Mr. Mahoney is a great combination for Peters Township,” said Acting Superintendent Joseph Dimperio. “We gain the expertise that Dr. O’Brien brings from across the state and through his national searches, and add the extensive knowledge of local school systems that Mr. Mahoney has to offer.”
The search is expected to be completed no later than July 1, 2013 and the compensation for the search is not to exceed $21,000.
Former Superintendent Nina Zetty left the district in November for Gateway School District.
