SUPERINTENDENT'S MESSAGE

MAY-JUNE 2020

I am so proud of the Findlay City Schools team as we enter the end of this school year with unprecedented challenges. Forced to face this pandemic shut down of regular school operations, creating Remote Education Options (REO), distributing meals, and navigating a variety of ways to communicate has been extremely challenging. As we work through the end of the year and throughout the summer we will allow grades 3 -11 to maintain possession of their Chromebooks. We will be providing summer resources to help with literacy skills and other beneficial academic engagement to counter a summer academic slide. Please check your building communication, and reach out to your Principal or Teacher for more information on items available for your student throughout the summer.

We are disappointed by the results of our 5.9 mill operating levy, but the board plans to put the levy in front of the community again in August. In our plan submitted to the Ohio Department of Education, we will continue to tighten up our budget. Our current educational programs are essential to providing opportunities for our students to develop into productive successful citizens. Our mission statement is Educating and Empowering for Life, and we will continue to work to provide the opportunities we feel are necessary to accomplish this mission.

Finally, this will be my last Superintendent message. I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to serve as Superintendent of Findlay City Schools. I am so proud of the dedicated Board, Administration, Faculty, and Staff that on a day to day basis go above and beyond in serving our students PK-12, and in providing a top-notch Career Center. I wish the district and community much success in the future. Thank you!
