As our school district begins summer break, I want to take this opportunity to thank staff, parents, students and the entire community for a fantastic school year. Whether academically, athletically or in the realm of performing arts, the 2017-2018 school year was full of memorable events and achievements throughout our district: I’m proud to be the superintendent of such an excellent school district in this wonderful community!
Although our students and staff are on summer break, our teachers will be attending meetings and seminars throughout the summer to hone their craft; when the 2018-2019 school years begins in August the Shelby City School District will be ready to hit the ground running to continue to provide our students extraordinary educational opportunities. During the summer, if you have questions about the upcoming school year, online/blended learning, preschool, open enrollment opportunities or any other topic, please feel free to contact the Board office at your convenience (419-342-3520).
Have a safe and enjoyable summer; go Whippets!

Assistant Superintendent & Director of Curriculum
25 High School Avenue
Welcome to the office of the Assistant Superintendent/Director of Curriculum. The role of the Assistant Superintendent/Curriculum Director is to ensure that our students and teachers have the tools, materials, and resources to be ready for the demands of the 21st century. The heart of any school district is the delivery of instruction and the implementation of a standards-based, research-driven curriculum. My job, along with the help of the district and building level administration, is to monitor and support all instructional and professional development initiatives designed to improve the academic performance, and achievement for grades K-12.
This is an extremely important time for our school district to be prepared for the transformation happening in education; we are preparing our students for the rigorous state standards that will take. All students in grades 3-11 will be taking the Ohio State Assessments online. The way we taught students in the past simply does not prepare them for the global world. As a district, we are focused on preparing our students for the future as well as ensuring third graders are reading on grade-level when they leave the elementary school. It is imperative that our students have the knowledge and skills to be competitive in the job market. I am confident our teachers, students, and community will rise to this challenge.
If you have any questions, please feel free to stop by or contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
