      Welcome to the Fort Recovery Local Schools District’s website and the 2020-2021 school year. Fort Recovery Local Schools serves nearly 900 students in a community of approximately 1,500 residents. We strive daily to improve the academic achievement of all students and we will continue to be driven by our current partnership with the Focus 3 group to build a district culture of, “Better Today Than You Were Yesterday. Better Tomorrow Than You Were Today!”

 

I am very excited to join the Fort Recovery Local Schools Staff and I plan to work collaboratively with the ADMIN Team, the instructional staff, instructional support staff, students, parents, and all of the Fort Recovery School Community Members. My wife, Susan, and I plan to move into the village at the start of this school year, and we look forward to meeting many of you over the course of this year. 

 

I started my educational career as a string instrumental music specialist at Bellefontaine (OH) City Schools. My building level administrative experience includes 13 years of service to the students of Bellefontaine and Margaretta Local Schools. My superintendent background includes 13 years of combined service in another local school district - Green Local (Wayne County), a city school district - North Ridgeville City Schools and an exempted village school district - Wauseon EVS. 

 

The students will also notice several other new faces as they return to school in August. We welcome the following individuals to Fort Recovery Schools and we look forward to their leadership in the upcoming years:

 

Ryan Steinbrunner (Middle School Principal)
Maria Barhorst (MS ELA Teacher & Virtual Academy)
Bonnie Fortkamp (Night Custodian)
Sheri Grover (Part Time Cook)
Elaine Pax (Part Time Preschool Aide / Cafeteria Monitor)

 

Feel free to contact me at (419) 375-4139 or [email protected] if you have any comments.
