The Neshaminy School District has selected a new Superintendent. Dr. Robert McGee, Ph.D will officially take his position on July 1, 2020 for a five year contract.
The new Superintendent is a Neshaminy graduate himself, having graduated from the former Maple Point High School.
“It is an honor, and honestly, a bit humbling, to be chosen to lead a school district like Neshaminy,” said McGee. “I look forward to working with students, staff, parents and the community to secure Neshaminy’s legacy in the future.”
McGee’s career at the school district has spanned 33 years. He spent 20 years as a mathematics teacher at Carl Sandburg Middle School before moving into administrative positions.
He has been the district’s Director of Secondary Education since 2018, and has also served as an Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal and Principal at Neshaminy High School.
McGee will replace Joseph Jones, who resigned this past January. Jones will go back to teaching math in the classroom at the Philadelphia School District.
The Neshaminy School Board selected Dr. McGee at Tuesday night’s meeting, which was held virtually. School Board President Stephen Pirritano commented on the appointment.
“The Board is very proud to nominate one of Neshaminy’s own to lead our District into the future,” said Pirritano. “Born and raised in Neshaminy, and a leader in this district for his entire professional career, Dr. McGee is uniquely qualified to carry on the success that Neshaminy is known for. His commitment to the District is unparalleled. Dr. McGee will set a new standard for responsibility and leadership.”
McGee will earn a salary of $196,000 per year with no increases.
