On Friday, March 18, 2022, in a Special Board Meeting, the Findlay City School Board approved Assistant Superintendent Krista Crates-Miller to be the Interim Superintendent for the 2022-2023 school year.  We are appreciative of Mrs. Crates-Miller and value her leadership with the district.  Mrs. Crates-Miller is a proud and loyal Trojan.  She grew up in Findlay and attended FCS where she graduated a Trojan in 1987.  She then started teaching with the district in 1993 in various roles.  She has continued in multiple capacities within the district, including her first leadership role in 2013 as a principal.

With many districts currently engaged in superintendent searches and after consulting with OSBA (who has assisted the Board with previous searches) now is not an appropriate time to begin a search.  We believe this is the right option for FCS and the community as a whole at this time.   We are confident that our decision to move forward with Mrs. Crates-Miller, as an FCS veteran educator and administrator, will allow us to move forward with the progress and momentum that has been evolving, even throughout the pandemic.  We recognize and appreciate all your hard work and dedication to Trojan Country.  We all want what is best for Findlay, as a district and community.

As we move forward, we will continue to re-evaluate and make the best and most appropriate decisions for the Findlay City School District.  We are confident in our leadership and staff, and we look forward to the future.
