Office of the Superintendent

A Message from Dr. Joe Clark, Superintendent

Spring is here! Finally! After a horribly bitter winter, I think it may be safe to put away the snow shovels!
We have much to be proud of: the best staff, the best community, and--of course--the best students in Ohio!
There are many exciting opportunities to be active in the schools. Please take some time to attend a spring athletic event, concert, or PTA event. You will find that our students are doing great things in and out of the classroom!

What Does a Superintendent Do?

It's been said of a school district's organizational structure that if the school board decides it wants to make a pie, the superintendent decides what type of pie to make, and the staff does the actual baking.  Ultimately, a superintendent is responsible for the day-to-day operations of all of the personnel and facilities in a school district.  

The duties of a superintendent can be categorized under five different areas: 

1. Vision, Continuous Improvement, and Focus of District Work
2. Communication and Collaboration
3. Policies and Governance
4. Instruction
5. Resources

The Department of Education and the State Board of Education have adopted specific roles and responsibilities for superintendents in Ohio. You can find those standards by clicking HERE.
