DPS officials say leadership, stability are key to moving forward

With Rhonda Corr out as superintendent, Dayton Public Schools officials are turning toward next steps, which include tackling old problems of student achievement and declining enrollment.

District leaders on Wednesday cited leadership and stability as key needs, while big decisions on possible school closures and hiring a superintendent loom on the horizon.

“Number one, you need strong leadership,” new school board President William Harris said Wednesday, adding that the superintendent search had not yet begun.

Harris and teachers union president David Romick both talked about efforts needed to rebuild trust in the community after Corr was hired, had her contract extended, then was suddenly gone. The district will pay her salary, health insurance and pension contributions through July.
