Toler leaving Scioto for position in district office

By

Donis Toler is leaving Dublin Scioto High School for a position at the central office.

The Dublin Board of Education this week named Toler coordinator of diversity and equity and the coordinator of human resources.

Superintendent Todd Hoadley said Toler will fill two positions in the central office upon leaving his principal position at Scioto.

"This position is an exciting opportunity for Dr. Toler and also provides the district with the ability to fill two vacant positions at the district's central office with one individual," Hoadley said.

In Toler's absence, Dublin Jerome High School Assistant Principal Robert Scott will lead Scioto High School as interim principal for the school year.

Scott worked at Scioto High School as a business teacher and coach for 10 years before serving as Jerome's assistant principal for the past nine years.

"His experience as a teacher and administrator will bring a wealth of knowledge to Scioto," a district news release said.

In the central office, Toler will work with principals on diversity issues. Dublin City Schools has students from 46 different countries that speak 56 different languages.

As coordinator of human resources, Toler will lead minority staff recruiting and retention efforts, in addition to completing other human resources jobs.

Other matters

In other district news, board members this week honored a Jerome High School senior who achieved perfect scores on both the ACT and SAT college entrance exams.

Linda Qin snagged perfect scores on the ACT and SAT, a feat not often accomplished, said Cathy Sankey, Jerome High School principal.

"The odds of scoring perfect on both the ACT and SAT are so small they don't even calculate it," she said.

According to Sankey about 1,000 students out of 1.2 million get a perfect score on the SAT each year. On the ACT, about 300 out of 1.5 million students ace the test, she said.

"We're very proud of Linda and her academic accomplishments," Sankey said. "The entire community would be proud to know her."

At Jerome High School Qin is part of the track team and varsity science Olympiad team, Sankey said. As part of the model UN team, Qin did so well last year, she was asked to lead the state contest this year.

"She is also a research assistant at a molecular lab at Ohio State University," Sankey said of Qin. The senior is considering majoring in biomedical engineering or neuroscience upon graduation.

"She is a remarkable person in addition to being an academic success," Sankey said.
