As I finish my 7th year as Superintendent I continue to be impressed by our students, staff, parents, partners, and our entire community in the Plain Local School District. All of us are fortunate to live and raise our family in a community that supports and values a quality education for all students. This belief will allow our community to grow and prosper well into the future!
As I reflect back on this school year, it was a great success. I was fortunate to witness excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts. I experienced an entire staff that was focused on each individual child and their ability to learn and grow in all of our school buildings. Our students performed at a high level on all athletic fields and represented our community at the local, state, and national level. I saw students excited about school because of our Arts programming. Students are learning through the Arts in Plain Local and their academic performance is enhanced with opportunities and experiences through the arts. Local businesses and institutions of higher education have come together to partner with the Plain Local School District. We are working closer together than ever to increase your child’s opportunities for success now, and the future. Our students took more college courses at GlenOak High School than ever before in the district. GlenOak High School was honored as a Silver Medal Award Winner from U.S News and World Report. This honor places GlenOak High School and the Plain Local School District as a top performer in Stark County!
We are just getting started! Planning for next year is already underway. We have new and exciting initiatives and events planned for next year. Our best is yet to come, and I appreciate your support! The August issue of the Plain Paper will outline opening year activities and events. We will continue to update all information on our website throughout the summer. Have a safe and restful summer!
