SOUDERTON, Pa. -

The superintendent of the Souderton Area School District is moving on.

Dr. Frederick Johnson has been superintendent for three years and says he's taking a position in Edinboro, Erie County.

He'll be executive director of the Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit.

Johnson said he has family, including an ailing mother, in the Erie County area, and it's been difficult commuting back and forth to Souderton in Montgomery County.

In his new position, Johnson said he'll serve as a conduit between state and federal government and local school districts, as well as with professional development.

Johnson said  he'd like to thank the board, cabinet, district administration, teachers, students and support staff of the Souderton Area School District.

He's been a superintendent in four school districts-- two in Pennsylvania and two in Ohio.

He starts his new job in July.
