Amy Scibek is leaving Wyoming Valley West as State Street Elementary School principal to become principal at Greater Nanticoke Area High School. Also at Greater Nanticoke Area, the district is temporarily closing Kennedy Elementary School this year because of an upcoming construction and renovation project there.
Because Kennedy Elementary will be closed, second-grade students will attend the Elementary Center and fifth-grade students will attend the Educational Center. Both schools are at the Kosciuszko Street campus in Nanticoke.
Elementary school students will be getting new Google Chromebook computers to use in their classrooms, and teachers in grades K-7 will use a new mathematics program called “Go Math,” Superintendent Ronald Grevera said. The new series provides teachers with a variety of Common Core-aligned materials, and officials hope it increases math achievement in the district.
As the new high school principal, Scibek will be examining the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum, Grevera said. The district is adding a new high school course — Scientific Research and Design. It’s intended to introduce students to the skills needed for technical careers such as engineering and scientific research, Grevera said.
