Hello and thank you for visiting the Superintendent’s page. As I begin my second year with Central Local Schools, I would like to thank the community for helping to make my first year as your superintendent an excellent experience. In partnership with an extremely caring faculty and staff, I will continue to do all I can to help our students achieve the highest levels, both in the classroom and through co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Educating young people has and always will be a joint effort between school and home. Continued support from parents, grandparents, and guardians is essential for the overall well-being of today’s learners. One of our main goals at Central Local Schools is to develop partnerships with families to encourage a cooperative effort in all aspects of the school environment. We highly encourage you to build positive relationships with your children’s teachers, principals, coaches, bus drivers, and other school personnel. Working together, we can assure that your children are pushed to their maximum level of capability while maintaining a safe and secure learning atmosphere.

In order to succeed in today’s market, students of all ages must be exposed to an appropriate 21st Century learning environment, which includes the use of modern technology. With inspiring lessons from our teachers to solid support from our technology department, administration, and board of education, our district is providing the needed skills to succeed after graduation. Students who graduate from Fairview High School are ready for the challenges that lie ahead in the next chapter of their lives, whether that be college, military, the work force or some other avenue.

Central Local Schools is also full of history, pride, and tradition. These traits are emphasized on a daily basis through an array of school activities. To help promote these traits and all the great events happening in our classrooms, departments, offices, etc., allow me to introduce a new feature called “Who’s Telling Your Story?” found on the right side of this page. It is here that we will regularly post pictures and stories from our employees telling the public the fabulous events happening on a daily basis. Your feedback on this new feature is appreciated.

Again, we want to work as partners with our community. If you have a concern about something happening at school or during a school event, please contact the appropriate school employee for assistance. If you aren’t sure who to contact, feel free to call the central office (419-658-2808), and we will assist you. My door is always open.

Here’s hoping for a great 2019-2020 school year… and Go Apaches!
