Dear Families and Staff,

I am writing to share an update regarding our Assistant Superintendent of Operations, Dr. Yamil Sanchez Rivera. It is expected that later this month, Dr. Sanchez Rivera will be appointed as the new Superintendent of the Southeast Delco School District.

While we do not have specific details on Dr. Sanchez Rivera's departure, it is anticipated to be either 90 days after the Board's acceptance of his resignation or by June 30, 2024. We will keep you informed as more information becomes available.

In the coming weeks, we will be actively involved in the process of selecting a qualified successor to ensure a smooth transition. Our focus remains on providing the best educational experience for our students, and we appreciate your understanding and support during this time.

Dr. Sanchez Rivera's contributions to the Reading School District and our community have been invaluable, and his dedication to student success has been commendable. His leadership has had such a meaningful impact in all areas of operations. While we are excited for his new opportunity, we also acknowledge that his departure will be deeply felt in our district community. We are sorry to see him go.

We congratulate Dr. Sanchez Rivera on his new role and thank him for his dedicated service to the Reading School District.

Thank you for your attention to this important update.
