The Pine-Richland School Board approved Jacob Minsinger to serve as the assistant principal at Pine-Richland Middle School.

Minsinger most recently served as a seventh- and eighth-grade English language arts teacher at West Allegheny Middle School.

He also served on the novel and anthology selection committee and participated in a text-dependent analysis study with the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment and the PA Department of Education. Prior to that, he worked as a long-term substitute seventh-grade reading teacher in the Avonworth School District.

Minsinger earned a Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction Certification from the University of Pittsburgh School of Education; a Master of Science and Instructional Leadership with principal’s certification from Robert Morris University and a Bachelor of Science in Education in Middle-Level Education.

Minsinger will replace Ashley Boyers who has accepted another administrative position at another school district.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
