Trego, Hoadley are finalists for superintendent
Two finalists for the Dublin City Schools' superintendent position are set to be interviewed today (March 7).
After interviews with six of the 14 applicants for the district's top leadership position, board of education members last week named two finalists: Todd Hoadley and Mike Trego.
Hoadley has been superintendent of Olmsted Falls City Schools since 2004. The Cleveland-area school district has about 3,800 students and more than 400 staff members.
Hoadley was also superintendent of Van Buren Local Schools in northwest Ohio from 1998 to 2004. His education experience includes five years of teaching and three years as a principal in Defiance, Ohio.
Trego has been with Dublin City Schools since 1989 and has worked in administrative positions including principal, director of learning and teaching and director of curriculum.
He has been deputy superintendent of Dublin City Schools since 2006 and has had a hand in district cost-saving measures and spending reductions, professional development, levy campaigns, insurance negotiation and other district operations.
The finalists are expected to meet with a committee of staff and community representatives before final March 7 interviews with board of education members.
The committee will share its insights with board members before a decision is expected to be announced at the March 11 board meeting.
Other candidates chosen for an interview were Tracey Miller, Dublin's director of secondary education; Michael Sawyers, acting superintendent of public education for the Ohio Department of Education; Dowagiac Union Schools Superintendent Mark Daniel; and John Marschhausen, who was last week named Hilliard's new superintendent.
Other applicants for the job included: Joel Darren Anderson, director of curriculum and instruction at Warren County Career Center; Marion City Schools Superintendent James Barney; former Hilliard Avery Elementary School Principal Steven Beale; Vincent Colaluca, Austintown Local Schools superintendent; Mark Hartman, superintendent of Antwerp Local Schools; Associate Superintendent of ODE's Division of Learning, James Herrholtz; Deputy Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction at Manassas City Public Schools in Manassas, Va., Michaelene Meyer; and Richard Smith, North Union Local superintendent.
