Superintendent Search



Despite the current pandemic, the Board has been able to move forward with the superintendent search. Last week, we met virtually with semi-finalists to determine if any of those eight professionals might be a good fit for Sylvania. We were able to narrow the field to four finalists. Our plan is to meet with these finalists in person for a second interview on April 8th.

We are also in the process of setting up a virtual “Meet and Greet” for a wide cross section of representatives from our staff and community.  They will be able to virtually access the finalists.  Although the final decision to hire the right person is that of the Board, we believe it is essential for key stakeholders to offer feedback to be used in the decision-making process. We are trying to balance safety with the necessity of hiring a leader who will be ready for the start of the 2020-2021 school year.

In doing so, we intend on keeping Ohio’s unfolding safety guidelines in mind. We will update you on the process if things change from our current plan, which could include again connecting with candidates virtually instead or even delaying interviews. We appreciate the community’s understanding, flexibility, and continued support as we continue the search for our next leader during this very unusual time.
