Ohio’s 38th Superintendent of Public Instruction, Paolo DeMaria, met with superintendents from Adams, Brown, Clinton, Fayette and Highland counties recently at the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center in Wilmington in an effort to open the lines of communication to discuss shaping the future of K-12 education policy.
DeMaria, a strong proponent for promoting higher student achievement, college readiness and completion, and school choice for families, is known as “an unabashed cheerleader for Ohio’s public schools.”
The opportunity to meet with DeMaria allowed superintendents to speak candidly about school funding, the Every Student Succeeds Act, and school report cards.
DeMaria also made stops at Miami Trace and Clinton-Massie Local Schools where he spent time visiting classrooms, and observing teachers teaching and students learning.
