A Message of
Appreciation and Unity
Coventry Local Schools is an amazing school district, and I am honored to be the newly appointed superintendent. As a lifelong resident of the area, a Coventry Schools’ community member, and a tenured Coventry educator, I can genuinely attest to the excellent education our students are receiving here in Coventry. On behalf of the district and myself, we are truly grateful and so very appreciative of the community’s most recent show of support - the passage of the district’s renewal levy. Thank you!
Most people know that Coventry Schools face many
challenges. These challenges include:
- an inadequate share of state funding,
- a high-wealth district rating; although approximately 50% of the student population falls within the category of economically disadvantaged,
- the struggle to meet state testing mandates, and
- state fiscal receivership; more commonly known as "fiscal emergency".
These are indeed challenges.
However, these challenges do not define us. Instead, they are merely
obstacles in our path to success. There
is no doubt that together, as a united, positive, and supportive community, we
will overcome these obstacles and continue to provide a high-quality education
to all of our students.
I look forward to working hard together to ensure this
