Superintendent Power to Retire August 1st, 2023

On the evening of February 28th, Superintendent Greg Power informed the Little Miami School Board of his intention to retire as Superintendent of Little Miami Local Schools effective August 1, 2023. This well-deserved retirement comes after nearly 46 years in public education, 30 years of service in the United States Air Force, and 19 proud years with Little Miami Local Schools.

Through his 12 years as Superintendent, Mr. Power has led Little Miami through some of our most challenging times, including fiscal emergency, exponential enrollment growth, and the impact of a pandemic on the traditional education system, just to name a few. Through the challenges, Mr. Power has been a champion for our students and growing community, leading impressive construction projects and paving the way for student success for years to come. We are confident that until his very last day as Superintendent, Mr. Power will continue his hard work to ensure all Panthers have the opportunities they need to succeed in and out of the classroom.

The Little Miami Board of Education will publicize details of the Superintendent search process and how the community can participate in the weeks to come.

Imagination Library - ENROLL TODAY

DID YOU KNOW? By the age of three, a child’s brain is already 80% developed, and, by the time a child enters kindergarten, they must already know thousands of words in order to succeed in the classroom. Reading aloud to a child and giving them access to books is the best way to ensure they are prepared to enter kindergarten.

The Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library wants to start a new chapter in early childhood literacy throughout Ohio by providing families with books. With the goal of preparing students entering Kindergarten for success in the classroom, the Imagination Library program will send a customized book to your child each month from birth until age five. Sign up is easy and FREE! Give your Panther the gift of reading & enroll today.
