Benjamin Ruby, 38, of Mount ...

Benjamin Ruby, 38, of Mount Wolf, assistant and co-principal at Northeastern Middle School for 12 years, has accepted the new post. The Palmyra school board is expected to ratify it on May 10, Superintendent Collene Van Noord said.
Jones, principal since 2008, will retire at the end of June.
Ruby said he sought a high school position because he has taught at that level in the past, and enjoys working with that age student.
"I am looking forward to the opportunity to make a positive difference in a high school in the local area," Ruby said. "I also really enjoy the extracurricular activities that go with high school."
Ruby is a 1996 graduate of Lebanon Valley College. He received a master's degree in 2000 from Bucknell University, and a doctorate in educational administration in 2010 from Immaculata University.
Prior to becoming middle school principal at Northeastern, he was a social studies teacher for four years at Loyalsock Twp. High School, Williamsport.
Since Palmyra's high school didn't make adequate yearly progress on PSSA tests last year in reading, Ruby said that will be one area on which he wants to improve scores.
"I will focus on making sure the educational foundation is strong, and making sure the academic work is rigorous for all students."
Ruby said he'll also strive to make sure students are prepared for the 21st century, "and make sure they have the skills necessary to be successful in college and the workforce."
Van Noord said Ruby has demonstrated strengths in data review and increasing test scores, and has experience with safety, Safe Schools, REMS (emergency management), anti-bullying programs and cyber options.
