After leading the Spring-Ford Area School District for nearly ten years, Superintendent Dr. David Goodin submitted his resignation on December 17, 2020. Dr. Goodin accepted the position of Superintendent of Schools in Sampson County, North Carolina.
“I’ve been reminded, during this global pandemic, the importance of family. My family plans to move back to the Carolinas. I’m originally from the South, my mother, children, and grandchildren all still live in the South, and it is important for my family that we spend more time together,” said Goodin. “Spring-Ford is an exceptional school district in a supportive community. It has been my honor to serve as your Superintendent.”
Over his tenure as Superintendent, Dr. Goodin served as Spring-Ford Educational Foundation Chief Executive Officer, represented the school district on the Spring Valley Y Advisory Board, supported the Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center (WMCTC) as the Superintendent of Record, and has served as President of the Spring-Ford Chamber of Commerce.
With the support of the School Board, Leadership Team, and Spring-Ford community, the district saw many accomplishments under Dr. Goodin’s leadership including the launch of the Hybrid Program at Spring City Elementary School and Royersford Elementary School; the Spring-Ford Area High School Innovation Center renovation and the Expansion Project; the 8th Grade Center’s 2012 National Blue Ribbon recognition; National recognition including News Week’s Top 500 High Schools, Washington Post Top High Schools in America, and US News and World Report Silver Medal for Top High Schools; the launch of the Project Lead the Way Program; and advancement through STEM Initiatives.
Dr. Goodin will remain with the district through the start of the new year. Over the coming weeks, the Board of School Directors will develop and share a plan for moving forward with district leadership.
