It is my privilege as Superintendent of Findlay City Schools to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year! Our new mission statement is: Educating and empowering for life. Whether your child is just starting in preschool or this is their senior year, Findlay City Schools is rich in tradition and strives for student excellence at all levels.
The faculty and staff are busy preparing for a wonderful start! This year's academic strategies include: closing the achievement gaps, providing conducive learning environments, improving instructional strategies to increase student achievement and continuing to promote teacher improvement. Findlay City Schools are routinely monitoring their cost effectiveness and potential for future educational capacities. As always, we continue to provide security measures to ensure safe educational facilities. I am continually impressed and appreciate all the community collaborations and coalitions that continue to work with us to make Findlay City Schools an outstanding choice for your child's education.
