Edon Northwest Local Schools had a special guest last Friday when State School Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Richard Ross stopped by to tour the facility and speak with school administrators. Accompanying Dr. Ross to Edon was Dr. Doug Carpenter, Executive Director of the Ohio Race to the Top program.
Greeted by Elementary School Principal Bonnie Troyer, Grades 7-12 Principal Anthony Stevens and Superintendent Ed Ewers, the group later walked the halls, visiting classrooms, talking about the school and expounding on the solid educational opportunity the District provides for its students and families.
Dr. Ross was selected by the State Board of Education as State Superintendent of Public Instruction in March 2013. He had been leading Governor John Kasich’s Office of 21st Century Education where he successfully moved several education initiatives through the legislative process including the Third Grade Reading Guarantee, revisions to the Teacher and Principal Evaluation Systems and the A-F Local Report Card.
