The Carlynton School District is pleased to announce and welcome Dr. John W. Kreider as the newly appointed Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Kreider was named superintendent by unanimous vote by the Board of Education at its meeting December 3, 2019. He will step into the role on or before February 7, 2020.

With over 27 years of experience in education, Dr. Kreider comes to Carlynton from the North Allegheny School District where he held the position of high school principal for the past four years. Prior to that, he gained leadership experience as a junior high school assistant principal, junior high school principal and as senior high school principal of North Hills High School. 

Dr. Kreider was one of 24 who applied for the position of superintendent. While at North Allegheny, he supervised and managed facility operations including budgeting, curriculum development, scheduling, professional development and student assessment.

Among his most satisfying accomplishments at NA was the expansion and development of the College in High School program and the launching of Professional Learning Communities. These programs have given students broader academic opportunities and engaging lessons immersed with technology.

Growing up in the Lancaster area, Dr. Kreider began his teaching career in the Lancaster School District before moving to North Hills in 2000. He taught math at the secondary level and coached baseball and wrestling.  His work in education is proudly supported by his wife Rosina and their three children, Marisa, Nicholas and Isabella.

“I’ve discovered the Carlynton School District is comprised of three supportive communities that embrace strong values. That sense of pride sustains the tradition of excellence and those are the characteristics I find attractive and inviting when serving in the capacity as superintendent,” Dr. Kreider said.  

Dr. Kreider earned a Doctorate in Education and a Superintendent Letter of Eligibility from the University of Pittsburgh. A Master’s degree in education and principal certification was also attained at Pitt. He completed his undergraduate studies in mathematics at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

The new superintendent received a four-year contract with an annual salary of $150,000.
