More School District Drama As Boyertown Elects New Superintendent Of Schools

As if Owen J. Roberts hasn’t provided enough superintendent drama, Boyertown Area School District has now jumped on the bandwagon.

Boyertown has hired a new superintendent to succeed Dr. Morgan, who is retiring.  However, there is already a kerfluffle afoot as a divided board elected the new superintendent.  Dr. Dion E. Betts of South Western School District in Hanover, York County was elected by a narrow 5-4 vote amid cries from dissenting board members to postpone the vote and take more time to select a superintendent.

So good luck Dr. Betts.  You are starting out behind the eight ball in a new job.  Betts was given a 4 1/2 year contract and a starting salary of $145K.  Hopefully people will at least give Dr. Betts a chance but there are already questions regarding his credentials from dissenting board members and the teachers union.

Let the drama begin.
