Effective June 19, 2020 Superintendent Charles Butsch has stepped down from his office and board position.  Acting Superintendent Rob Hinkle, with the approval of the board, has appointed Kevin Feeney to serve out the remainder of Charles's term which ends in 2021.  Kevin received the next highest number of votes in the general election and has accepted the position.  Elections for officers will take place at the next board meeting in early July.  The results will be posted here and sent out in an email announcement.

We wish to thank Charles for his many years of dedicated service to the Philadelphia Division, first as Assistant Superintendent, and then as Superintendent.  He will be honored with a plaque of recognition at a future event.
