Daniel Schroer, superintendent of the Margaretta Local Schools, has been named the new superintendent of the Springboro Community City Schools.
Schroer was one of three finalists, all currently working as superintendents in other Ohio districts, who met with staff, residents and the school board in successive sessions at Springboro Junior High School on Monday.
“Mr. Schroer’s overall experience and his passion to be a collaborative superintendent for Springboro made him a strong candidate from the beginning,” Dave Stuckey, board president, said in a press release. “We believe he has the expertise to work effectively with the board, the staff, and community to continue the mission and vision that our district defined with our community over the last three years and define goals with our staff for the future of our students.”
Schroer will replace Todd Petrey, who resigned effective Aug. 31, to become the chief operating officer with the Mason City Schools.
Melissa Kircher, superintendent of the Bethel-Tate Local Schools; Jenifer Penczarski, superintendent of the Kenton City Schools were the other two finalists.
The school board is scheduled to approve Schroer’s hiring and approve Petrey carrying over an unspecified number of unused vacation days.
“Due to hiring and district issues, Mr. Petrey has not been able to take all of his vacation days,” according to the description of the agenda item.
The board meets at 6 p.m. at Springboro Junior High School.
