“Oakwood schools has long been recognized for delivering excellent education. This achievement does
not happen without well-prepared students, a highly committed staff, a deeply supportive community,
and a great partnership with families,” Duwel said in a released statement.
“As we transition, the board of education will thoughtfully lean into these same groups to assure the next generation of Oakwood schools’ students benefit from our shared values,” he added.
Ramey’s resignation was accepted by the board this week. Ramey said earlier he plans to relocate out of the area to be closer to family.
“I will miss working with such outstanding professionals and truly value the friendships we have created,” he said in the three-paragraph resignation letter.
Ramey became the district’s superintendent in 2013. Before he came to Oakwood schools, Ramey was in Kettering City Schools for 20 years as a teacher, principal and director.
