As the superintendent of the Nordonia Hills City School District, I am grateful to lead another exciting academic year filled with endless possibilities and opportunities. Our team of dedicated educators, staff, and administrators is thrilled to serve our students and families, and we are proud to continue our mission of providing a high-quality education to all.

Our schools are more than just buildings – they are the heart and soul of our community. We believe that a strong education is a foundation for a successful and fulfilling life, and we are committed to providing our students with the tools and resources they need to thrive in today's world.

Whether you are a new resident or a long-time member of our community, we welcome you to join us in our mission to empower our students to reach their full potential. Together, we can create a brighter future for our children and our community as a whole.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Go Knights!

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.
