The Northwest Local School District (NWLSD) Board of Education has begun the search for a new Superintendent. The vacancy comes as current Superintendent Todd Bowling recently announced his retirement on June 7, 2021, marking his last day as June 30, 2021.
“We want to thank Mr. Bowling for his dedicated service to Northwest Local Schools and we wish him well,” said Mark Gilbert, NWLSD Board President. “We are committed to finding a leader to build on the success of the Northwest Local School District.”
On June 21, at a Special Board Meeting, the Board voted unanimously to instate Darrell Yater, current Assistant Superintendent, as the Interim Superintendent, which will go into effect June 24, 2021. The Board also announced that they will be working with Hamilton County Educational Service Center (HCESC) to help carry out the search for qualified candidates and that they will also work with the District to survey staff in order to gain feedback surrounding the characteristics that they would like to see in the next Superintendent.
HCESC will begin accepting resumes for the next Superintendent on June 22, 2021, with the hope of naming the next Superintendent by August of 2021.
