Carlynton names new acting superintendent


Carlynton School Board called on a familiar face to help lead the district while the search continues for a permanent superintendent.

Board members unanimously approved Joseph Dimperio as acting superintendent for no more than one year, beginning on or before Oct. 22.

Outgoing superintendent Gary Peiffer was hired by Greensburg Salem School District in July. Contractual obligations have Peiffer continuing his Carlynton duties as needed for up to 90 days.

This will be Dimperio’s third time serving as an interim or acting superintendent for Carlynton. His previous time was prior to Peiffer’s hiring six years ago. Dimperio will be paid a rate of $525 per day worked.

“I’ve been in the business a long time,” said Dimperio, who has been a permanent superintendent for several districts but now serves in the leadership role on a temporary basis.

Dimperio is finishing up his duties as acting superintendent in Beaver County’s South Side Area School District as that school board nears the end of its search for a new leader.

“He’s gotten great experience at a number of other districts in the area and he has a great reputation,” Carlynton board President Jim Schriver said. “He’s done a lot of great things for us in the past.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
