Hempfield’s Maxwell Elementary appoints new interim principal
Hempfield Area School District has appointed an interim principal at Maxwell Elementary School.
Jeff Kozuch starts work Monday.
He replaces Alene Mancini, who retired this week.
Kozuch has 22 years of experience, according to superintendent Tammy Wolicki. He’s been a middle school science teacher with the district and administrator at the Crossroads Alternative Education Program.
A search has not begun for a permanent principal at Maxwell, Wolicki said, because several administrative positions are in flux.
West Hempfield Middle School Principal Aaron “Tate” Steinly has been on medical leave for a year. The board recently extended his leave through December.
Several faculty members have been moved into interim positions as principals and assistant principals to fill the gap.
These positions likely will not be permanently filled until Steinly’s leave ends.
