2 perfect candiates for the Chambersburg position, if Joe would leave would be Roberta Johnson who basically runs the Career Center or their old Director Jim Duffey who's the Superintendent at Fannett-Metal. Roberta's due to retire soon, so not sure if she'd want it, but those are two good people that would do a great job as the next Superintendent.
How about Barry Purvis?

He has many years experience in the classroom and at the administrative level. In addition, he has a doctorate and
long-standing ties to the district and to the Chambersburg community.

... and which Purvis family member are you?

Barry Purvis, and Billy Hodge, and on and on. Nepotism at it's worst. Let's hire someone based on their qualifications and forget who they are related to and whether they are a minority.

This position is not an upward mobility position, and should be filled by someone who fully meets all the qualifications and has demonstrated excellence in the past.

Did Springford hire the Chambersburg superintendent yet or did they decide to keep looking for another choice?
I watched the meeting on the district website when he was introduced to sf residents. I have to believe there must be someone else to better match the sf goals of our community.

They decided not to hire him. The Limerick Patch.com has the brief story. They couldn't come to terms. A lot of money wasted if you ask me

I wouldn't go that far. They hired an outside firm and that was the best they came up doesn't say much for that head hunter

The way things go in education, the head hunter may have been friends with Joe.

This speaks volumes about what most of us have believed for so long. Joe P certainly is not an asset to our district, or our community.
