Project architect hired, superintendent deadline set

SLIPPERY ROCK — Slippery Rock Area School District officials on Monday hired an architectural firm to oversee the stadium project and announced details for their search for a new superintendent.

Board members accepted the proposal from J.T. Sauer and Associates, Burgettstown, for landscape architecture and engineering services for the field, track and stadium renovations.

The total fees for their services through the completion of the project are about $103,000, said Paul Cessar, the board secretary and the district’s business manager.

The project itself could cost about $2.5 million, depending on how extensive the upgrades and additions are. Plans include replacing the lights and bleachers, improving drainage and elevation and possibly adding an artificial turf grass field.

Candidates interested in applying for the superintendent’s position can now do so on the district’s website at www.slipperyrock.k12.pa.us

Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Nogay is retiring June 30.

The search process for a new school leader includes a school board committee and a district-wide survey that will measure community members’ desires for the next superintendent, according to a news release issued by the district.

The survey is also posted on the district’s website, and residents who live in the district are encouraged to participate. The results will help determine the next superintendent.

Interested candidates can obtain an application packet at www.slipperyrock.k12.pa.us, by calling 724-794-2960, or by email at slipperyrock.suptsearch@hotmail.com

The application deadline is March 26. Questions about the application process can be directed to Dr. Victor Morrone at 412-726-2210.
