School Board Accepts Superintendent’s Resignation

MOUNTAIN TOP, Pa. --  The resignation of a school leader in Luzerne County is official.

The Crestwood School Board accepted Superintendent Joseph Gorham's resignation at Thursday's meeting in Mountain Top.

Gorham's exit comes after a controversy surrounding the district's bus drivers not receiving proper background checks.

Gorham had been on administrative leave since students were kept out of school for two days back in October.

"We certainly have learned a lot from that investigation. There's a lot of things we know we have to fix," said Bill Jones, president of the Crestwood School Board.

Joseph Rasmus is set to take over as superintendent at the district in Luzerne County.

Crestwood's Chief of Operations, Christopher Gegaris, has been suspended since October. He stepped down Thursday night. His replacement hasn't been named yet.
