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