Superintendent of Schools

To Our Kirtland Schools Families,

On March 6, we are hosting our first-ever Senior Citizen Appreciation Dinner. We invite our local senior citizens to join us for a free pasta dinner, sponsored by Angelos Pizzeria and Restaurant, and the Kirtland High School Drama Club’s performance of “Rest Assured.” Our high school Jazz Band also will provide dinner music.

Our student athletes and coaches had an impressive fall and winter sports season. Our Hornets football team came home with another state championship, and Coach Tiger LaVerde was named 2018 Cleveland Browns High School Coach of the Year. Our Lady Hornets soccer team finished its season as runner-up in the Division III State Championship, while our boys’ team made its first-ever Final Four appearance.

At its Jan. 21, 2019, meeting, the Kirtland Board of Education took the final step to place a 4.11-mill renewal levy on the May ballot. This is not a new tax. The levy was originally approved by the voters in 1999 and will be extended for five years. The renewal of the $1.45 million will help the district maintain current educational programming and services.

The renewal is critical to the district as our revenue is projected to remain flat. The district has worked hard to control and reduce expenses and will continue to do so into the future. The Board and administration are committed to maintaining fiscal responsibility to the community with a goal of ensuring every dollar spent benefits students and the community. The Board and the district will remain transparent in financial discussions as they progress.

We’re looking at a strong second half of the year. If you have any comments or questions, please reach out to me at or call 440.256.3311.
