The Keystone Oaks School Board voted unanimously tonight to hire William P. Stropkaj as the district’s superintendent, school officials announced.

Stropkaj, 46, has been the assistant superintendent for elementary education and curriculum for the North Allegheny School District since 2008. Prior to that he worked in several supervisory positions in the Montour School District and taught mathematics and physics in the Deer Lakes and Sto-Rox school districts.

Stropkaj, a Kennedy resident and McKees Rocks native, holds a doctorate in school administration from the University of Pittsburgh.

He replaces William Urbanek, who retired in December after 36 years with Keystone Oaks. Stropkaj will begin working at Keystone Oaks on July 1.

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.
