The Greater Johnstown School District has a new leader, however it’s a familiar face.
The former assistant superintendent, Amy Arcurio, was appointed as the district’s new superintendent Tuesday night.
She’ll take on her new role at the end of November and will serve until June 2023.
The Greater Johnstown School Board enlisted help from the Pennsylvania School Boards Association to fill the position, after Interim Superintendent Michael Vuckovich left in June to accept a superintendent job in Indiana County.
Vuckovich took over for former Superintendent James Cekada in 2016 after he resigned.
Arcurio said that she is “very excited and extremely” optimistic. She also added that there are many people who are devoted to improving the school district.
