Spring Cove School District manager lasts 11 days

ROARING SPRING – Spring Cove school board members on Monday accepted the resignation of the district’s first-ever “child accounting manager.”

Her tenure: 11 days.

The position, created in April and activated this month, is to be reopened for candidates immediately, Superintendent Robert Vadella said after a Monday board meeting. The job involves gathering and analyzing student data for government programs.

Kim Moyer – who had served as Vadella’s secretary before moving to the newly created position at a $40,000 annual salary – resigned to take a similar job in Intermediate Unit 10, a state-designated region covering Centre and other counties.

“School districts are scrambling to find quality candidates [for child accounting positions],” Vadella said. “And they found a quality candidate. Unfortunately, it was the one we had.”

The job will likely be advertised in local newspapers this week, Vadella said, noting that administrators hope to hire a replacement as soon as possible.

Moyer’s resignation was made retroactively effective to Friday. She was not available for comment.
