Something Good is Happening in Our Schools

As part of its mission, the Greater Cleveland School Superintendents' Association features the accomplishments of a member's school district in its monthly newsletter under the heading, "Something Good Is Happening In Our Schools". This short article of approximately three hundred words highlights recent accomplishments of the school district and is shared with 273 school districts throughout the state.

Past Issues


Michael Zalar, Superintendent,
North Olmsted City Schools

The North Olmsted City Schools are a source of pride for the community for their continued focus on making sure all of their children are successful. Our staff knows we are more than members of a school district – we are members of the community.

Our students work with their teachers to reach their highest level of accomplishment despite the challenges many of them face each day.

When we started our strategic planning process over a year ago, the planning team identified a major challenge in school facilities that date back to the Great Depression – specifically a 1930’s middle school with eight additions and major infrastructure issues.

In January 2014 a Community Facilities Task Force was formed to study possible options, costs and ideas and address the serious issue of how to fix our buildings to meet the demands of a 21stcentury education.

The task force study evolved into a plan and the plan evolved into a bold vision not just for the students, but also for the community.

North Olmsted is working with their residents to transform the current middle school/high school 55-acre site plan into a true educational campus that will reface a main crossroad into the city and create a new gateway to the community.

The vision includes a 6 – 12 campus style building with separate wings and entrances that will serve students with seven years of seamless instruction in a modern facility.

The redevelopment of the site includes a performing arts center and upgraded athletic facility for both student and community use.
We are hoping our community will see what we can be if we move forward with a building that can support wireless technology, online classrooms and collaborative learning.

Our mobile phones today have more processing power than the Apollo Lunar Module. With the rapidly growing and ever changing educational demands, our vision is to build a better 21st century future for our children.
