 As we start the 2023/2024 school year, I am excited about the many opportunities that lie ahead. We continue to build a strong foundation based on great faculty and staff, a supportive Board of Education, tremendous support organizations, and an engaged community. With the strong foundation that we have built over my first year, we continue to shape our District to exemplify excellence in all we do, with our three goals, which we monitor and address on a regular basis: 

  1. To meet every child where they are at in your classes, activity or sport, regardless of their situation and GROW them 1% every day!

  2. Improving incoming and outgoing communication with the staff, parents, students and community members

  3. Improving upon the great WARRIOR PRIDE that already exists.

We have engaged students, faculty, staff, community members and the Board of Education to set the goals, which have driven our efforts all year. Through several conversations we have made several changes to better serve the great Mohawk community. Below is a brief list of some positive changes, which came from these engagements:

  • Consistently study several data points to ensure students are growing academically on a daily basis. 

  • Various “Warrior Pride” activities throughout the year, Warrior War Party, Car Smash, etc.

  • Created a “Safety Team” to look at safety concerns on a granule level and make appropriate changes.

  • Installed grant funded “vape detectors” in the restrooms.

  • Adding a new set of doors in the “access hallway” as an increased safety measure.

  • Updated the preschool webpage with pictures and pertinent information.

  • Changed our open enrollment procedure to be all online and very user friendly from the comforts of home.

         I want to wish all of the Mohawk community the very best of school years! We are looking forward to making great memories!

Hello Mohawk Community,
The school board is the education watchdog for their community, ensuring that students get the best education for the tax dollars spent. They are a governing body elected by the residents of the school district, committed to insuring our students are prepared for their future. I am very pleased to work for a Board of Education that emphasizes student achievement, is committed to long term fiscal stability, and analyzes data to look at progress toward meeting our goals.

The Mohawk Board of Education has established a strategic plan with four areas of emphasis.

1. Student Achievement and Instructional Excellence
Whether students are continuing their education in pursuit of a specific vocation, college intending, or moving into the work force, it is our primary mission to prepare students for success.

2. Communication and Community Engagement
We inform our community of the great things happening at Mohawk.   We seek community input when considering policy revisions. We communicate through multiple platforms including web, social media, automated alerts, and traditional print materials.

3. Fiscal Stewardship
We operate with complete financial transparency and are committed to good stewardship of taxpayer dollars. We maintain and improve our facilities to improve efficient and effective operations now and in the future. We plan and save for inevitable and costly maintenance needs such as roof replacement and paving. We established a rainy day fund to insure financial stability. Finally, we operate with a balanced budget.

4. Safety and Security
We develop and revise district and building safety plans annually. We conduct and document all safety drills as mandated by Ohio Law. We have implemented technologies and protocols for dealing with an active shooter situation. We drill with area first responders in preparation for an active shooter situation and have put in place technologies to help prevent or minimize casualties in the event of such.

Our board meetings are  public meetings and community members are always welcome. If you have questions or concerns you’d like to  discuss, please don’t hesitate to call. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the students of Mohawk School District.
