The Grove City Area School District school board unanimously approved Dr. Richard Mextorf as the new superintendent of the district. The vote took place during the monthly meeting on Monday, April 11.
Mextorf came from the State College Area School District, where he lost his job over a Nov. 18 traffic stop, where he was arrested for DUI and related traffic offenses. Mextorf's blood-alcohol content was 0.316 - nearly four times the legal limit.
Mextorf was pulled over at 7:58 am on a Thursday morning.
Mextorf's DUI case was delayed until May 9.
The Grove City Area School District school board offered to pay Mextorf $127,000 per year, which is several thousand more per year than retiring superintendent, Dr. Robert Post.
