  • Superintendent Searches in Fort Recovery and Coldwater

    Does anyone know if there has been any decisions made in either of these positions? I had heard FR narrowed it down to six, but has anything happened since then?

    Justin Firks was hired at Fort Recovery. I know Mr. Firks from his days as an assistant baseball coach at the Fort many years ago. He also was the varsity baseball coach at New Bremen for a few years. I thought he did a pretty good job there as they were sort of successful-at least more so than lately. Should be an interesting hire.

      Coldwater School Board has interviewed four candidates. Will determine next who to ask back for a second interview.

        Coldwater's search is over.. They've hired Jason Wood from FM district.... I know this man, he's a stand up guy and should fit in well at a MAC school.

        http://earlybirdpaper.com/wood-leavi...water-schools/

        PITSBURG – Jason Wood has been educating students in Darke County for nearly 10 years, but beginning with the 2015-16 school year he will take on a new challenge. Wood has been named the new superintendent for the Coldwater School District.
        Wood, a graduate of Bradford High School, began his career in the 1995-96 school year at the Montgomery County Education Center. After three years in that position he returned to Darke County and took a position as a teacher with the Ansonia School District. While serving in those positions, Wood also served as the head baseball coach and assistant basketball coach at Bradford and head baseball and basketball coach at Ansonia. In 2001, Wood continued his teaching career at Mississinawa Valley where he also served as athletic director.
        In 2008, Wood changed gears and left the classroom for an administrative position. He has been Franklin Monroe’s middle/high school principal since.
        Wood, speaking on the acceptance of the position at Coldwater, said, “This is a great opportunity to go to a district with a great tradition in not only academics, but extracurricular activities as well.” He has held a superintendent’s license for a couple of years and has been looking forward to the opportunity to serve in that position. However, Wood was not willing to accept any position that was offered. He wanted a district that would be good for him and his family. He pointed out there wasn’t much difference in Coldwater and Franklin Monroe in that both places show great community support for the school system.
        “I will miss Franklin Monroe,” said Wood. “This has been a special place.” He noted he has made good friendships in every district he has served.
        Wood earned a Bachelor’s degree from Huntington College and did his Master’s coursework at Mary Grove, Wright State University and the University of Dayton.

            I doubt it had anything to do with his decision-but he goes from one of the worst baseball facilities in the state to one of the best.

            And if he thinks Coldwater is like Pitsburg-he will be pleasantly surprised.
