• On Monday, May 15, the Lower Dauphin School Board voted 7-0 to appoint Dr. Patricia B. Sanker as Interim Superintendent of Schools, effective June 3, 2023.

    Dr. Sanker will replace Dr. Rob Schultz, who announced his resignation in April and whose last day will be June 2.

    She has served as an interim superintendent five times since her retirement in 2013 from the South Middleton School District. 

    “The board was seeking a candidate with a wealth of experience, strong leadership skills and a willingness to work side-by-side with our wonderful administration to continue summer programming and prepare for a strong start to our upcoming school year,” said Board President Lynn Sassaman. “We are confident Dr. Sanker’s experience will support our schools and uplift our community during this very important time for our district. We are pleased she is willing to serve our district until a permanent superintendent is hired.”
