Superintendent of Schools

Hello Kirtland Parents and Caregivers,

The feeling within the Kirtland Local Schools has been very positive as we have moved more toward “normalcy” with reduced COVID-19 transmission rates and warmer weather. We have remained in the “all in” learning model since mid-February with nearly 80% of our students learning in person. Observing students engaged in spring athletics, Drama Club and the First Tech Challenge (FTC) has been wonderful. Plans for the end of the school year are being made including our seniors having a prom and traditional graduation ceremony. The students’ and staff’s positive energy and excitement around campus has been contagious!

Our staff is working hard to ensure our students continue to grow academically while also supporting and meeting their social emotional needs.

We are working on a summer program that will be offered to all of our students to keep the positive momentum going. I want to thank our students, staff, families and community for their ongoing support as we have navigated through the challenges presented in this pandemic.I would like to remind our community that the Kirtland Local Schools will be on the ballot on May 4 with a permanent improvement levy.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me [email protected] or 440-256-3311 ext. 2000.
