The Pennsbury School Board of Directors has appointed two new members.

Michael Pallotta will fill the seat of John Palmer, who went on to join the Falls Township Board of Supervisors. Howard Goldberg will replace Nancy Lawson in the Region 3 seat.

School Director Christian Schwartz recognized Lawson in a resolution to start last Thursday’s special meeting.

“She worked with her fellow board members and the administration to move the district forward through two years of strategic planning, implementation of the district-wide one-to-one chromebook initiative, and the introduction of the elementary SPARK program while containing costs in an efficient manner.”

Pallotta has been a Pennsbury resident for more than three decades. He works as an electrical foreman and project manager for Palman Electric.

Goldberg is returning to the Board of School Directors for the third time, as he has held a spot on the board on two separate occasions. He served his main time from Dec. 2005 to
Dec. 2013, then again briefly in 2015 to fill a vacancy.

Superintendent Dr. William Gretzula welcomed Pallotta and Goldberg to the board.

“On behalf of the administrative team, we look forward to partnering with our two new Board members, as well as the entire Board, to successfully accomplish the District’s annual goals and the strategies incorporated in the recently-approved, three-year Comprehensive Plan.”
