WEST GROVE, PA — On October 27, 2021, Avon Grove School District’s (AGSD) Director of Business Administration and Chief Financial Officer Daniel Carsley was awarded the Delaware Valley Association of School Business Officials (DVASBO) Advocacy Award.

The DVASBO award, sponsored by retirement and investment firm Kades-Margolis, recognized one school business professional from each of the four surrounding counties (Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery) for outstanding advocacy, guidance and service during the 2020-21 COVID-19 pandemic.

In Chester County, Joseph P. Lubitsky, director of administrative services for the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU), nominated Carsley for his outstanding work in AGSD.

“In addition to leading a high-performing business office staff during the pandemic, Dan has also been a key contributor in all aspects of the major capital projects underway in AGSD, including the construction of a new, state-of-the-art high school and the renovation of an existing building for a future middle school,” stated Lubitsky.

“Projects of this magnitude involve complex and time-consuming work to complete designs, obtain approvals and align financing strategies. The current projects are on schedule to be completed on time and under budget. Much of this success can be attributed to Dan Carsley’s commitment and tireless efforts to serve the school district and the community,” Lubitsky continued.

This year, in addition to the recipients nominated by each county’s correlating intermediate unit, Kades-Margolis recognized the business manager from each intermediate unit for their support during the COVID-19 pandemic and, as a result, Lubitsky was the award recipient for the CCIU.
