Dear Coventry Families,

On behalf of the Coventry Board of Education, please allow me to welcome you to the 2018 - 2019 school year! With the start of a new school year, comes the opportunity to successfully educate ALL students through high expectations, productive learning environments, and a commitment to excellence. 

Some exciting news to share, is that Coventry has hired a new district treasurer - Ms. Sherry Tyson. Ms. Tyson, who was most recently employed with Youngstown City Schools, was selected from an elite pool of candidates to fill the open position. With her wealth of knowledge and experience, Ms. Tyson will be a great addition to our Coventry family. When you have a minute, please be sure to welcome Ms. Tyson to the district. 

Over the summer, our team has worked tirelessly preparing the buildings and facilities for your return and the arrival of our students. Some of the more significant projects include:

=         Closing Lakeview and relocating all administrative offices to CES and CMS

=         Improving safety and security (adding additional security to the middle school and installing video cameras on all the buses)

=         Renovating several middle school restrooms

=         Deep cleaning each school building

=         Installing new copiers throughout the district

=         Completing many maintenance and repair projects, such as fixing the stadium restrooms

Completing all of these tasks, in just a couple of months, is not an easy feat.   It takes a lot of hard work and collaboration amongst several individuals. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our maintenance department, the custodians, the technology department, and all central office staff who have gone above and beyond this summer to ensure the successful completion of these projects.

In closing, I am looking forward to an exciting school year where we all “Come Together” and remember “Comets Forever”!

Wishing you and your child(ren) a great start to the school year,

Lisa A. Blough
Superintendent
