November 8th was a pivotal moment in the history of Sylvania Schools. The passage of Issue #17 will enable the district to continue to play a vital role in the lives of our students and the broader Sylvania community.  It is with heartfelt appreciation that we thank all of our community supporters; parents (present and past), the Sylvania City Council, the Sylvania Township Trustees, the Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce, the Sylvania Area Community Improvement Corporation, Sylvania Rotary, Sylvania Senior Center, and to all of the other community members who recognize the valued relationship of a strong school district to our community.  We are sincerely grateful for the trust the community has placed in us and we will work diligently to meet and exceed that trust.

The tireless campaign work of teachers, support staff, administrators, board of education members, parents and community members cannot be overstated.  This collaborative endeavor was the reason Issue #17 passed by such a significant margin.  This successful campaign model will serve as a blue print and equip Sylvania Schools to confidently move forward into the 21st Century.

The future for our students is secure.  Sylvania Schools will be able to address their needs in an educational environment which is not only conducive to learning, but also allow us to better meet their social and emotional needs.  The ability to foster in our students the life-long passions and interests is a core value of all Sylvania educators.  As the Superintendent of Sylvania Schools, I want to express my deep gratitude to everyone who advocated for our students and their future.
