Hello Jersey Shore Community.  My name is Dr. Brian Ulmer and I am the Superintendent of the Jersey Shore Area School District. At a special meeting on April 29, 2020, the Jersey Shore Area School District Board of Directors unanimously (9-0) approved me as the district’s next Superintendent. I come to Jersey Shore with Central Office experience at the Milton Area School District and prior experience as a building administrator and classroom teacher. Jersey Shore’s mission is to “provide a supportive environment where all members learn, grow and succeed to positively impact the world around them.” I am committed to leading the school district community in the fulfillment of that mission.

As your superintendent, I will work tirelessly to make The Jersey Shore Area School District a better place. I will strive to maintaining a high standard of ethics; maintain positive staff and board relations; foster effective communication with and engagement of all district stakeholders; employ cost-effectiveness strategies; and establish close cooperation between parents, teachers, and other school district staff.

I hold a Doctorate in Public Administration from West Chester University, a Master’s degree in Education and a Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility from California University of PA, and a Bachelor’s degree in History and Spanish Education from Mansfield University.
