Familiar face to fill in as Indian Creek superintendent

The search for a superintendent continues at Indian Creek Schools.

The Ninveh-Hensley-Jackson Board of Trustees appointed Matthew Prusiecki as the new interim superintendent in early December. He will begin his position on Monday, a spokesperson said.

Prusiecki was appointed while the board continues to search for a permanent one. Mary Roberson was previously the interim superintendent, but had prior obligations and could not continue as the interim superintendent, a spokesperson said.

Prusiecki was previously the Indian Creek superintendent from 2011 to 2013. He was employed by Decatur Township Schools in Indianapolis for 21 years, 11 of those years as the district leader, according to a retirement announcement from the school district. He has also been a teacher and coach at West Lafayette Harrison High School and Warren Central High School in Indianapolis.

“I look forward to the opportunity to work with the Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson United School Corporation Community and help continue developing and growing the great things that are happening,” Prusiecki said. “Having served the community in the past, I understand and know the great support and collaboration that exists for the benefit of the children and their families.”

Indian Creek was left without a superintendent for this academic year after Tim Edsell left for the superintendent position at Clark-Pleasant schools. Assistant Superintendent Andrea Perry stepped in to fill his responsibilities until the board hired Roberson. Superintendents are responsible for hiring and firing principals, central office administrators, business managers, custodial staff, nurses, athletic coaches and other school employees, according to Indiana law.

Prusiecki will continue splitting superintendent duties with Perry, as Roberson did.
