Bethel Park School District announced that Athletic Director Dan Sloan will transition to a new role, supervising facilities and operations.
As athletic director, Sloan oversaw a mammoth department that featured 27 varsity, 14 junior varsity, four junior high, and 15 middle school teams. He also oversaw one of the most significant individual budgets in the school district. He will lean on that experience in his new role as he oversees district facility rentals and reservations; and helps to coordinate transportation efforts.
In May, Dr. Mark Korcinsky was elevated to his newly created role as Assistant Superintendent for Facilities and Operations. The veteran administrator, with an extensive background in logistics, soon realized that he needed a strong manager to help facilitate some of the changes that continue to be made. He quickly identified Sloan as the ideal candidate to fill that role.
“For this role, we needed someone who understands the school district and the key role logistics and planning plays in ensuring everything is functioning properly,” said Korcinsky. “I can’t think of a more well-suited person for that responsibility than someone who has spent almost every day for the past decade doing just that for our student-athletes.”
During Sloan’s seven-year tenure as athletic director, Bethel Park teams claimed five team or individual state championships, eight-team or individual WPIAL championships, and dozens of other team and individual WPIAL and state playoff appearances.
Sloan is a 2007 graduate of Robert Morris University, where he also played baseball.
Sloan’s former position will be filled by Laura Grimm, who has served as assistant athletic director for the past two seasons.
