Plum School Board has a new leader.

Members unanimously appointed Scott Coulson board president at a reorganization meeting Dec. 3.

The Republican and director of computing services and telecommunications at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is in his first term on the board.

“It’s an honor, of course, to have the support of my fellow board members,” Coulson said. “We’ve got a great team, and I’m happy to be a part of it.”

He replaced Steve Schlauch, who served one year as president. Schlauch remains finance committee chairman.

“Moving forward, we will remain focused on doing our best to continue working with the administrators, teachers and staff on constantly looking to improve the education and safety of our students,” Coulson said. “In addition, we’ve developed a strong relationship with the borough administration that I’d like to continue to work with and cultivate.

“It is important to me personally that we work to improve the relationship with our neighbors and community as best we can. It takes time, I know that.”

The board also unanimously reappointed Vicky Roessler as vice president.

Bruce Dice remains district solicitor and the Tribune-Review’s Valley News Dispatch was approved as Plum’s local newspaper of record.

Board workshop meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month, and voting meetings are the fourth Tuesday of the month, both at the high school unless otherwise directed.

More information about board activity is available under the School Board tab of the district’s website, .

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.
