The Lancaster Board of Education last week approved several administrative appointments at its meeting on Monday.

Marie Perini, who has been director of secondary education at the Lancaster School District since 2007, was recommended by new Superintendent Michael J. Vallely, to be his successor in the role of assistant superintendent of curriculum, instruction and pupil personnel services..

Vallely’s July 1 appointment as superintendent, coupled with two administrative retirements, created a ripple effect in the district’s administrative ranks.

In addition to Perini’s appointment, the following recommendations were approved by the School Board: High School Assistant Principal Andrew Kufel will now serve as director of secondary education; Middle School Principal Amy Moeller will be principal at Hillview Elementary School; and Carrie Green, most recently employed by Akron Central School District as an assistant elementary principal, will join the Lancaster staff as principal at John A. Sciole Elementary School.

Vallely noted that all of the administrative appointees have been highly engaged in the roll-out of recent educational initiatives, including the annual professional performance review process and Common Core Learning Standards.

“I am excited to recommend these individuals and feel very confident they will help lead Lancaster Central Schools to its next level of excellence,” he said. “Lancaster is fortunate to have each and every one of them on our administrative team.”
