    Dear Members or Prospective Members of the Southern Lehigh Community:

    It is an honor and a privilege to serve you and this wonderful community as your Interim Superintendent of Schools. My main job is to work with everyone in the district to ensure a smooth opening of the 2021-22 school year and to efficiently transition the district to your new Superintendent of Schools once they are approved by the Board of Education. While I’ll be with you for a short time, it is a very important time in the storied history of the Southern Lehigh School District.

    Simply put, the Southern Lehigh School District is the perfect place to live and attend school. Nestled in the southern part of the beautiful Lehigh Valley, you find yourself to be a short trip to the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area, the New York Metropolitan area, and the beautiful Pocono Mountains. As a value added accolade, the Southern Lehigh School District is the number one ranked School District in the Allentown area according to the spring 2021 US News and World Report of the best high schools in the nation.

    Our schools are known around the region for many things. One being the innovative and very popular Spanish Immersion program that starts in 1st grade. Another is our focus on the whole child, with one of the best social emotional support systems for student wellbeing in place. Our athletic and extracurricular programs are second to none. Our k-12 class size ratio is commensurate with any of the very best suburban school systems in Pennsylvania. And we pride ourselves in getting to know every student on a personal level. We have the very best
    teachers and principals working with our students. Relationships are key to student

    Speaking on behalf of the Board of Education and everyone who works in the Southern Lehigh School District, I can safely say we are all very proud of our small but powerful School District. We are all honored to work here and honored to serve our community. If you’re looking to move into the district, feel free to contact me for any assistance you may need. We are here to help you have the best educational experience possible for your/our children. Yours in Education, Larry Mussoline, Ph.D. Interim Superintendent
