The York Suburban Board of School Directors has named current Assistant Superintendent Scott Krauser to replace Superintendent Timothy Williams, who retires at the end of June. 

Williams became Suburban's top administrator on July 1, 2018, and Krauser started as the assistant superintendent Nov. 5, 2018, according to Nick Staab, coordinator of communications and administrative services.

The board accepted Williams' resignation in December 2021 and began the search for a new superintendent.

That search ended May 9 when the school board planning committee voted to hire Krauser. He will begin his new role July 1.   

The incoming superintendent started his career as a teacher in 1998 at East Petersburg Elementary School. He then joined the York Suburban School District in 2007 and served as an assistant principal, principal and assistant superintendent.

He built many strong relationships over his 15 years in the district, he said.   

Scott Krauser will join York Suburban School District as new assistant superintendent Nov. 5. Krauser is currently principal of York Suburban Middle School.

"I'm honored to serve the York Suburban School District as its next superintendent,” Krauser said in a written statement.   

He said Thursday he plans to tackle his new role by initially getting out in the community, listening and learning. His primary focus is to be visible and collaborate with the community and the school board.   

“The shape of education is changing,” he said, adding that the district will work through the changes with the help of the community, which is invested in the students.

Long before COVID, the district put in place a series of diagnostic and benchmark assessments to measure the students' growth and needs. The data is used to help match the students with the appropriately rigorous curriculum. Krauser said that coming out of the pandemic, the district will still use the data from those assessments and will continue to refine it.
