Administrators in the spotlight at Central Bucks


Two new adminstrators were welcomed June 26 and two current Central Bucks administrators will take on new roles.

Allison Kuchler, who has served as a member of the district’s special education leadership team since 2016, will begin service as the district’s director of special education on July 1.

As a supervisor of special education, Kuchler oversaw K-12 life skills support, K-12 regional learning support, and 7-12 autistic support for students who take the PSSA/Keystone Exams. In January, Kuchler became the buildingwide supervisor of special education for Lenape Middle School and CB West High School.

“I am humbled and honored to have been chosen as the next director of special education in Central Bucks School District,” Kuchler said. “I look forward to working with a great team and continuing my service in the field of special education on such a large scale.”

Rachel Murray joins the district’s team as a supervisor of special education. Murray comes to Central Bucks from Centennial School District, where she has served as a supervisor of special education. Her prior experience includes work at the Bucks County Intermediate Unit, where she served as a teacher and program coordinator for children with autism.

Bridget Pustay will make the transition to a new role as principal of Titus Elementary School on July 1, following the departure of Steve Cashman. Pustay has served the students of Central Bucks since 2004, as a teacher, and most recently, assistant principal of CB South, a role she has held since 2015.

Justin Rubenstein will assume the role of assistant principal at CB West High School. Rubenstein comes to Central Bucks from the Bensalem Township District, where he serves as a school psychologist.

In other news, Hannah Reagan, campaign director for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter, presented the Central Bucks School District Board with the results of the 2018-2019 school year’s “Pennies for Patients” fundraising campaign held in Central Bucks schools.

Students, staff and families in 20 of the 23 CB schools collectively raised $78,939 by conducting competitions during the fall, winter and spring while learning about blood cells, cancers of the blood and local heroes who are battling blood cancers.

Funds will go to supporting local patients and research efforts to find cures for leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and Hodgkin’s disease and ensure patients have access to lifesaving treatments.
