The Hilliard City School Board of Education has asked David Stewart to be the next Hilliard Superintendent. Mr. Stewart has been serving as the Deputy Superintendent for the South-Western City Schools for the past eight years.
The selection is the result of a national search conducted with the assistance of the Educational Service Center of Central Ohio. There were multiple applicants, along with a targeted search of several others, including superintendents.
Board of Education President Lisa Whiting said in the end, Mr. Stewart proved himself to be the best choice for Hilliard. “Our community told us they wanted a Superintendent with a proven academic track record and who knows the Hilliard Community,” she added. “David fit the profile of what our community, staff, and board were looking for. We are excited to bring him on board.”
David served as the Principal of Darby High School for four years. In 2008 he was tasked with opening Bradley High School. As Deputy Superintendent in South-Western, he has a proven track record of driving academic excellence and a passion for working with staff, students, and families.
Mr. Stewart has a Bachelor’s degree from Miami University and a Master’s in Education Administration from Ashland University.
“It is an honor to have been selected by the Hilliard Board of Education as the next superintendent of this outstanding school district,” said Stewart. I am excited to get to work developing relationships with the committed staff and talented students. Creating partnerships with our parents and community members will be a top priority. Hilliard is an excellent district, and I look forward to supporting our work to prepare our students for what’s next.”
The Board of Education anticipates a July 1 start date.
