Superintendent's Message

Happy 2022!!


January 14th marked the end of the first semester of the 2021-2022 school year. I want to thank the Avon Lake City Schools’ staff, our students, their families, and our community for everything they have done to make the first semester a success. As a school district we carefully plan for each school year knowing that those plans will change, in fact they have to change if we are going to meet our goals for the education of all students. I am so proud of how we have met the challenges thrown our way in 2021. I am excited for the second semester and know that together we can continue to face any challenge successfully and continue the outstanding educational experiences that our students need for success.


I would also like to say a special thank you to the members of the Avon Lake City School District Board of Education. January is designated as School Board Recognition Month. The opportunities to say thank you to our School Board Members are limited and that is a shame. This group of five people work year round for our students and our community. Their dedication to students and providing those students with an up-to-date, rigorous, comprehensive education is evident in the success of our graduates year after year.


I would be remiss if I didn’t say a special thank you to Dale Cracas. Dale retired from the School Board on December 31st after 16 years of dedicated service to our students. His selfless service to our community has made Avon Lake a better place to raise kids and to live.


Have a great second semester! Go Shoremen and Shoregals!
