Is Columbia's superintendent jumping ship?

Is Carol Powell leaving Columbia? Signs point to "yes." Currently, she is the superintendent of Columbia Borough School District, having assumed that position on July 1, 2014 for a three-year term at a starting salary of $115,000.

Shown below is a screen shot of Personnel Recommendations from the December 15, 2015 school board meeting agenda of the School District of Lancaster:

As shown above, a Carol Powell is slated to fill the position of Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction for SDL at a salary of $135,000 (to be pro-rated). Hire date and effective date are to be determined.

No mention of her resignation from Columbia Borough School District could be found on its website.


  1. They should match that number to keep her here!!

  2. Don't need a captain for a ship that's gone under

  3. She's already paid a ridiculous amount of money for a small school district that's not doing too well. Certainly not all her fault but I haven't seen many changes either.

  4. Changes, how about 20+ Teachers leaving after she took charge, many were very good for Columbia. Dr. Klaywitter really cared about Columbia, he was the best.

    1. The former superintendent might feel better about comments like the above ... if the commenter spelled his name correctly: Klawitter.

  5. OK so to clarify, I havent seen any changes instituted by her that have improved things in CSD. 20 teachers left the district solely because of her? I doubt you can lay that all at her feet.
