Board Meeting Recap

The Board held a brief meeting last week to approve contracts for two vacant administrative positions.  Both contracts were approved unanimously.

+Unionville High School Assistant Principal: Amy Jenkins
+Pocopson Elementary School Principal: Clif Beaver

Unionville High School Assistant Principal: Amy Jenkins

The interview process was long and thorough.  Amy was selected from among 75 applicants for the position.

Amy comes to UHS after having spent the last five years as an Assistant Principal and Dean of Students at Sun Valley High School in Aston, PA. While at Sun Valley, Amy wore many hats and was responsible for implementing the 1:1 technology initiative, organizing the Keystone testing, and developing all student schedules.

Amy received her undergraduate degree from West Chester University and completed her Master's degree at Penn State with a concentration in Instructional Systems. Prior to becoming an administrator, Amy was a Language Arts teacher for ten years and an Instructional Technology Consultant/Classrooms for the Future Instructor for three years.

Pocopson Elementary School Principal: Clif Beaver

A few weeks of uncertainty came to a close tonight at the special Board meeting.  Mr. Clif Beaver has been appointed as the new principal at PES.

Mr. Beaver, currently principal at Unionville Elementary School, is a consummate professional with expertise in pedagogy, leadership, and communication.  We are excited to have such an enthusiastic and effective leader at the district's largest elementary school.  

We also recognize that he leaves behind a school full of people who will miss him dearly. The interview process for Clif's replacement will be inclusive, involving focus groups and an interview committee.
