DANVILLE – After just a little over a year, the Danville Area School District is looking for a new superintendent. Mike Levin, of the Levin Legal Group in the Philadelphia area representing Danville school board, tells WKOK Danville Superintendent Jason Bendle has resigned by mutual agreement with the board, effective immediately.
Board members have not said why Bendle stepped down. Board President Kevin Brouse tells WKOK the board talked extensively about its search for a new superintendent in an executive session following the meeting.
He says a special board meeting will be called in the next week or so, to discuss the matter. Brouse says at that point, the board will have a further statement and will look appoint an interim superintendent. He says ads for a permanent replacement will be released in the coming days. Bendle was in the midst of the second of a five-year contract.
