Greensburg Salem to pay superintendent part-time as he wraps up previous job

Gary Peiffer, Greensburg Salem School District’s new superintendent.

Greensburg Salem School District’s new superintendent has been splitting his time between Greensburg and his old job at Carlynton School District, which is looking for his replacement.

Even though the school year started Aug. 29, Gary Peiffer has not been collecting a paycheck from Greensburg Salem. That will change this week. The school board voted unanimously Wednesday to pay him a per diem of $553.84 per day for the time he spends in Greensburg. Carlynton will continue to pay him for the days he spends there.

Once Peiffer starts full time in Grensburg he will make a salary of $144,000, the same as his predecessor, Eileen Amato.

Peiffer said he will continue to work at both school districts until Carlynton finds an interim superintendent. He hopes that will happen by the end of this month. If finding his replacement takes longer than expected he could remain at Carlynton until Oct. 23 at the latest, he said.

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.
