Dr. Michele Dowell Hired as Superintendent of Schools for the Belle Vernon Area School District
The Belle Vernon Area School District hired Dr. Michele Dowell as Superintendent for a five-year term at it's regularly scheduled meeting on March 25th, 2019.
The Board participated in a lengthy search process coordinated through the PSBA (Pennsylvania School Board Association). The board considered several candidates but decided that the best course for the District was to avoid another change in leadership.
Rather the District will change her title from acting Superintendent to Superintendent so Dr. Dowell can continue the course she has undertaken the past year. She has led our District through a time of change and will continue to provide solid leadership while working closely with the Board and staff.
Belle Vernon Area School District provides a learning environment designed to motivate students to perform to high levels of academic achievement and self-sufficiency. The school environment encourages personal development, confidence building, interaction with others, problem-solving and learning to become ethical, productive and morally upstanding members of a global society.
