As you may know, our District is building a new middle school near Bradley High School, which will replace the current Memorial Middle School in 2018. The current Station Sixth Grade School will move into the current Memorial, and the Innovative Learning Center will expand programming and open The Hub in what is currently Station.
It is with excitement that I share I have asked Mr. Craig Vroom to become the Principal for the new Innovative Learning Hub beginning in the 2018/19 school year. Mr. Vroom is a highly successful elementary and middle school principal. He is a statewide leader in digital and networking collaboration and was recognized as Ohio Middle Level Principal of the year in 2016. His innovative approach, track record of success in Hilliard, and ability to create connections will be invaluable as we expand the ILC campus.
I am also excited to announce I have asked Mr. Chad Schulte to take over as Principal of Weaver Middle School beginning next year. Mr. Schulte has spent the past five years serving as a Darby High School Assistant Principal. Prior to this role he was Athletic Director at Darby for four years.
Mr. Schulte lives in the Weaver attendance area with his wife and children who will attend Weaver in just a few years. He is happy to get the opportunity to serve the community he calls home.
Our district will continue to seek opportunities for innovation. Expanding our Innovative Learning Center is just one way we will be able to prepare our students to be Ready for Tomorrow. In the next month, we will be sharing more plans and programs that will be housed at the Hub. There is no finish line – we are on a journey. We will continue to lead, not follow, in the area of instruction and innovation.
