Steelton-Highspire severs ties with superintendent after long time off work

Ellen Castagneto’s employment with the Steelton-Highspire School Distirct will end June 30 as the school board voted June 16 to cut ties with the former superintendent, who has not worked for the district since October.

“There has been a mutual parting of ways,” said Travis Waters, the acting superintendent since October.

Waters did not have any information about the district’s search for a new superintendent or when it would start.

The school board approved Castagneto’s request for time off under the federal Family Medical Leave Act in October. She did not return to work after that leave expired in January, and school officials said she was on medical leave.

Castagneto taught classes in the fall and spring semester at Penn State Harrisburg, during which time Steelton-Highspire paid her full salary and benefits.
