The Interboro School Board voted to appoint Interim Superintendent Bernadette Reiley as the district’s permanent superintendent at a public meeting Wednesday night. Reiley had been serving on an interim basis since the post was vacated by the resignation of Jack Cleghorn earlier this year.
“Bernadette Reiley has served the district for a number of years,” Board President Brian Razzi said prior to the vote. “Through hard work and dedication she has worked her way to a leadership position. ... Her leadership style has earned her the respect and admiration of this board.”
Reiley has been working in the Interboro School District for nearly 20 years. She began as a teaching assistant, then became a long-term sub at the Glenolden School. She then taught at Norwood School for 10 years, followed by a year as dean of Tinicum School. She moved on to become principal of the Kindergarten Academy and had been serving as director of curriculum for the district for the last two years.
