NANTICOKE — The Greater Nanticoke Area School Board announced Thursday night that Mariellen Scott was appointed as interim superintendent of district effective Jan. 28.
The appointment came after the board’s official acceptance of longtime Superintendent Anthony Perrone’s letter of resignation, for health reasons, also effective Jan. 28. The school is posting for the position of superintendent for the new school year in August.
Scott praised the job that Frank Grevara and the maintenance team did removing the snow, and making the school grounds safe for the students, faculty and staff.
Scott also stated everyone worked together during the recent power outage at K.M. Smith Elementary School, turning the misfortune into a “fun day” for the students. Scott commented on the transferring of the elementary school students to the High School, during the Feb. 12 power outage. The younger students spent the day with the high school students, who were very helpful throughout the occurrence.
The board approved a resolution to contract with the ELA Group Inc. in the lump sum amount of $9,640 to conduct a topographical survey of approximately 16 acres of athletic fields on the high school educational campus.
The survey work will occur under the management of Professional Design and Construction Inc.
The next board meeting will be on March 13 at 7 p.m.
