Tom Otto is on his way to becoming the Altoona Area School District superintendent beginning this summer, and he will carry that title at least through June 2017.

A four-year contract for Otto, who has served as Clearfield Area School District superintendent since 2011, is expected to be approved at the board's Feb. 19 meeting, board President Ryan Beers said.

The contract to be approved has Otto starting with a salary of $141,000, Beers said.

The contract will include an automatic annual salary increase of 2.5 percent and an annual bonus of up to 1.5 percent depending on a board evaluation of Otto's performance, he said.

"I think Altoona Area is one of the premier school districts in Pennsylvania," Otto said.

It won't be after he's done with it.

"A resident of Altoona, Otto commutes to work at Clearfield Area School District."

Typical way of doing things around here. Having some outsider tell us what to do and run our schools into the ground.

Yep, top-down failure is undeniably strong at Clearfield. You can't keep serving up pitiful year-after-year test scores and blame it all on the students.

Be it blind eyes just 'mailing it in' until pension day, curriculum choices or hiring practice failures, the entire structure is failing our students miserably. And no one is asking why. It's sad school has become a self-serving business that is no longer accountable for the services they provide.

I'm glad to see him go, however, it really doesn't matter who they hire he/she will simply be a pawn for the school board anyway!

I guess i,ts to much to hope for that the big dept that he ran up while he was here is going with him. The daily trip from Altoona to here should have been a good indication that he wasn,t going to be here long enough to take responsibility for any mess he caused here. The taxpayers of the Clearfield Area School owe them (the school board) for their not seeing that far ahead. They probably provided him with a credit card and you know it paid for all his expenses, including gas to commute from Altoona and back. Fine job Mr. Glass.

Should the Altoona area tax payers be nervous that Dr Otto is coming home to oversee the school district? How was he with the students?
