Update on Stadium Bleachers and Superintendent Search
Message from Mr. Jim Pemberton, School Board President
I would like to start off by thanking everyone for their patience throughout the fall sports season. It was not our first choice on the tear down and replacement of our home bleachers at the football field, but ultimately it was our only option.
On that note, I would like to let everyone know that with the help of all of you, everyone on our fundraising committee, and board members, our total to date for the Stadium project is sitting at just under $200,000 in pledged or actually received donations. I think that is fantastic and everyone deserves a big THANK YOU!

On the superintendent search, we have posted the position, received the first round of applications, and cut the initial candidates to 4. We have engaged the current Darke County and interim Preble County ESC Superintendent to help us with the process, as there are only two on the current board that have went through this process in the past. Over the next couple of weeks, we have interviews with the 4 potential candidates scheduled, with the interim Preble County ESC Superintendent facilitating for us during the process. After the interviews, we will decide next steps and determine which, (if any) candidates to bring back for a second interview.
I plan on sending updates out as we move forward in progress. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Moore or myself and we will answer everything that we can.
