Superintendent | District Goals
The superintendent, as the CEO, is charged with the day-to-day responsibility of the district. The superintendent is not a member of the board itself. He serves as a professional educational adviser to the board.
Students as Learners
We will provide students with rigorous and relevant learning experiences, ensuring that all students are life-long learners equipped with the knowledge and skills to meet the demands of college and career.
We will develop positive relationships in a safe and caring environment that promotes rigorous and meaningful learning opportunities.
Staff as Learners
We will engage all staff in meaningful professional learning to meet the diverse needs of our students.
We will promote and ensure student success through the effective use of taxpayers' investments.
Family and Community Relations
We will engage in partnerships and service through consistent, transparent and effective communication practices.
We will analyze and prepare for social, economic and political change that may impact the Gahanna-Jefferson Public Schools.
Members of the Gahanna-Jefferson Board of Education are elected by the community to
establish district priorities, policies and to evaluate the outcomes of District
operations. The board appoints a superintendent to ensure
academic achievement for every Gahanna-Jefferson student - not only for today’s opportunities, but those on the horizon as well. On behalf of the board of education, the superintendent works to:
- Determine the educational needs and aspirations of
every Gahanna-Jefferson student, staff member and the entire community — and
how to best engage each;
- Identify educational and socioeconomic trends with an impact on District operations or goals; and,
- Provide overall leadership while developing sound practices to manage the
day-to-day operations of the district.
The Superintendent works collaboratively with the Treasurer, who recommends and
manages an annual budget based upon the parameters also set by the
board of education.
