Interim Superintendent Hired In Danville Area School District

The Danville Area School Board has hired an interim superintendent. Dr. Ricki Boyle will be paid $450 per day to lead the district until a permanent replacement for Dr. Jason Bendle can be found. Bendle and the Danville School Board parted ways earlier this month without an explanation of reason for the departure. Bendle is still receiving full pay and benefits from the district, and could receive them for up to a year. Boyle retired from the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit and was also previously employed in the Danville School District as the director of pupil support services.
