Greensburg Salem School Boardpresident Mum on Resignation


Stiles, Bob, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


The president of the Greensburg Salem School Board has submitted his resignation over a "continuing disagreement" in a personnel issue, he said Thursday.

Nat Pantalone, who served 14 years on the board, declined to identify the personnel matter.

"Due to a continuing disagreement over a personnel issue, I don't want to be part of the board," Pantalone said. "It's a continuing disagreement on this personnel issue, and I'm not happy with the way it's going. I'm not pleased."

Pantalone handed his resignation letter to Superintendent Eileen Amato during a board meeting Wednesday.

Before the public session, Pantalone and other directors met privately with attorney William Andrews for what Amato later said were personnel and legal issues.

The state Sunshine Law allows governmental boards to meet in private over certain issues involving personnel or legal issues.

Directors last month granted Rullo a sabbatical leave for health reasons.

Rullo has not filed a complaint listing her allegations against the district and the directors, all of whom have declined comment.

Pantalone attended the private meeting, left early and returned with his resignation letter.

"Due (to) the way things are being handled and people are being treated, I can no longer be part of the Greensburg Salem School Board," his letter states. "Please accept my letter of resignation, effective immediately.
