It is with excitement and honor that I write this letter of introduction as the new assistant principal at the Butler Intermediate High School. This upcoming school year will be my fifth with the Butler Area School District. Prior to my position as assistant principal, I served the district as a school counselor at the Middle School, Northwest Elementary, and Connoquenessing Elementary. Prior to Butler, I was a school counselor with the State College Area School District, as well as a school counselor with the Baltimore City Public School System.
Dr. Brian White, Superintendent of the Butler Area School District, presented his recommendation for the future organization of our schools on Monday, June 10, 2019. His recommendation is based on numerous factors, including community feedback that was gathered at the School Organization Community Forums last fall.
At this point, we are once again asking for community feedback. We hope you will take the time to review Dr. White's report and share your feedback by completing a short survey.
