Dackin tapped for new post at Columbus State

Retiring Reynoldsburg schools superintendent Steve Dackin won’t stay retired for long.

Columbus State Community College announced today, July 2, that Dackin will fill the newly created post of Superintendent of School and Community Partnerships, starting in August.

Dackin announced last November that he would retire as the district’s superintendent July 31.

According to a press release from the college, the new position was made possible by a $2.5 million grant from JPMorgan Chase.

The money is earmarked to expand The Central Ohio Compact – a regional education initiative formed in 2011 and led by CSCC. The collaborative involves dozens of school districts, higher education institutions, business and civic partners to develop ways to help students complete college and achieve career success in the region.

Dackin will oversee the growing number of Columbus State partnerships and initiatives originating from The Central Ohio Compact.
