Board of Education selects next superintendent
Jodie Hausmann, Superintendent of Perkins Local Schools, to take helm when Superintendent Keener retires

The Bay Village Board of Education has hired Jodie Hausmann, Superintendent of Perkins Local School District in Sandusky, Ohio, to replace the district’s current superintendent, Clint Keener, when his retirement becomes effective August 1.

Hausmann has served as superintendent at Perkins since 2015, where she led a strategic planning process engaging more than 100 of the district’s stakeholders. She collaborated with community members for passage of an operating levy and permanent improvement renewal levy after a long district history of failed ballot issues.

New school calendars begin school earlier in August
The Bay Village Board of Education has approved the 2018-19 school calendar. The board held a hearing on February 5 at its regular meeting for the proposed 2019-20 calendar. The 2019-20 calendar will be placed for approval on the Monday, March 12 board meeting agenda. The earlier start for the upcoming school years allows for the first semester to wrap up before the winter holiday break. This lets Bay High students take important end-of-course state tests without the previously lengthy interruption to instruction and review. Passage of those tests can affect eligibility for graduation. Grades 3-12 benefit from more pre-test instruction, as well. Here is our NEWS RELEASE describing the decision process.
