A $10,000 forgivable loan program designed to induce teachers and school district employees to buy homes in the borough has been implemented by the Foundation for Pottstown Education.

The idea was first proposed by school board member Thomas Hylton in July 2015 and Superintendent Stephen Rodriguez acknowledged the launching of the program “has been a long time coming.”

The responsibility for the program was shifted to the non-profit foundation after a legal review found problems with using tax money to benefit a specific class of citizen.

Joe Rusiewicz, executive director of the foundation, made the announcement at the April 24 school board meeting.

Stephen Rodriguez isn’t acting as superintendent any more.

Monday night the Pottstown School Board ended a 16-month search for a new superintendent by unanimously hiring the person who has been doing the job temporarily for the last year.

To be fair, when former superintendent Jeff Sparagana retired in June, Rodriguez was serving as human relations director and agreed to serve as “acting superintendent” but said he did not want the job of superintendent.

But evidently, after the school board went through its first round of candidates and could not find anyone that it could agree to hire, Rodriguez had a change of heart and threw his hat in the ring.

For the second time in two seasons, Pottstown’s football program will be led by a new head coach.

Mark Fischer, the offensive coordinator at Phoenixville the past two seasons, was voted in as the new head coach at Pottstown’s school board meeting Monday night, ending the school’s coaching search after the departure of Gary Rhodenbaugh.

“I’m very excited,” Fischer said. “Pottstown drew me in. I love the close community they have there. When I was at Phoenixville two years ago and we played at Pottstown, I just saw all the community members walking in and how supportive they were. That was one thing that stuck with me and made me want to apply.”

Fischer becomes the third head coach to lead the Trojans in as many seasons. He replaces Rhodenbaugh, who resigned after one season after the Trojans struggled in a 2-9 season (1-4 Pioneer Athletic Conference). Rhodenbaugh had served as the Trojans’ offensive coordinator the year prior.
