Pennsbury School District appoints new administrators


During the public School Board meeting held on June 18, the Pennsbury Board of School Directors appointed a new director of facilities, a new director of technology, an acting administrator for Afton Elementary School and an administrative intern for William Penn Middle School.

Timothy Holman was selected to be the school district’s new director of facilities, effective on or before July 24. Holman will replace Michael Dumin, who is retiring from Pennsbury in late July.

Holman comes to Pennsbury from the School District of Philadelphia, where he has served as director of facilities management and services since 2019. Prior to that position, Holman was assistant director of operations for the School District of Philadelphia.

As the director of facilities in Pennsbury, Holman will report to chief financial officer, Christopher Berdnik and serve as a member of the Superintendent’s Cabinet. He will be responsible for supervising a staff of nearly 200 employees in maintaining over 2 million square feet of building space. Holman will also be responsible for long-range facilities planning, including capital investment, design, bidding, and construction.

The director of facilities oversees all aspects of environmental safety in Pennsbury, plus mail operations, field and facility usage, and professional service and maintenance contracts.

The board appointed Timothy McCleary to serve as the district’s new director of technology, effective later this summer, upon release from his current employer. McCleary will replace outgoing director, Brad McCormick, who elected to return to his previous role as supervisor of educational technology.

McCleary joins Pennsbury after serving as the assistant director (and previously, as the supervisor) of technology for the Cheltenham School District since 2009.

As the director of technology, McCleary will report to Superintendent Dr. William J. Gretzula and serve as a member of the superintendent’s cabinet. The director of technology is responsible for the leadership, planning, coordination, communication, evaluation and monitoring of the district’s technology programs.

Jeanmarie McGinley was appointed to be the acting principal at Afton Elementary School for the 2020-2021 academic year. She will be replacing Dr. Joseph Masgai, who was selected to serve for a one-year term as a resident ambassador in the U.S. Department of Education School Ambassador Fellowship Program in Washington, D.C.

As the acting administrator at Afton, McGinley will report to Michele Spack, director of elementary education, for the general administration of Afton Elementary.

Most recently, McGinley has served as an educational technology administrative intern in the Pennsbury Technology Department since 2018, specializing in assisting faculty and administrators at the elementary level.

Maria Gregory was reappointed to serve as an administrative intern at William Penn Middle School, where she served previously in the same position during the spring of 2019 and throughout the 2019-2020 academic year.

As an administrative intern at William Penn Middle School, Gregory reports to Principal Christopher Becker and Assistant Principal Dr. Michael Hogan. She will be responsible for assisting with the general administration of the middle school.
