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.

  • Superintendent Evaluation 2020-2021

    According to Section 1073.1 of the Pennsylvania School Code, superintendents must be evaluated via an annual performance review using objective performance standards. The Board of school directors will post the date of the assessment and whether or not the district superintendent has met performance standards.

    Dr. Brian Ulmer, superintendent, was assessed by the School Board on June 9, 2021 and satisfactorily met all performance standards.

2020-2021 Performance Objectives

1. The Superintendent will submit a written report on the Superintendent Entry Plan to the Board of Directors by October 15, 2020.

2. During the 2020-2021 school year, the Superintendent will provide instructional leadership to building principals and ongoing oversight of the performance of each district school and to that end will submit building action plans to the Board of Directors by January 1, 2021.

3. The Superintendent will prepare and present a balanced budget to the Board for approval by June 30, 2021.
