From the Pennsbury School District:
Elliott H. Lewis, Ed.D. was named Assistant Superintendent of Administration, K-12 for the Pennsbury School District by the Board of School Directors at the public meeting held on February 14th. Dr. Lewis will replace W. David Bowman, Ed.D., who resigned from Pennsbury in November 2012.
As Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Lewis will report to the District Superintendent, Dr. Kevin J. McHugh, and serve as a member of the Superintendent’s Cabinet.

The two Assistant Superintendents are also responsible in tandem for evaluating the District’s 16 principals. Further responsibility for the Assistant Superintendent of Administration entails significant input into the budget process, especially in the areas of staffing and scheduling, athletics, the community school, alternative education, summer programs, and serving as liaison to the Bucks County Technical High School.
“Dr. Lewis’ extensive experience as a school principal will be invaluable as he takes on the myriad responsibilities of this new role,” said Dr. McHugh. “The perspective that he brings with his science background will also be a welcome addition to our expanding STEM initiatives. I am very pleased to have Elliott join our executive team.”
