Chief on Superintendent Todd Hoadley's to-do list for his next three-year term with the Dublin City School District is to address crowding.

Hoadley said he will prioritize working on the school's master plan, which includes a little less than $113 million in new facilities to address student growth and a likely November 2018 ballot issue.

Dublin Board of Education members unanimously approved the contract Dec. 18 and expressed gratitude for Hoadley's service.

The contract is effective Aug. 1, 2018, through July 31, 2021. Hoadley's salary will increase from $176,437 to $180,142 per year, and his total compensation package will increase to $234,184.60 annually from $229,368.10.

"Doctor Hoadley has been very responsive to community input," said Lynn May, board president.

Hoadley is "an excellent leader and valued teammate," said Stu Harris, a board member.

Hoadley said great things happen when community members, students, faculty and parents are motivated.

"We have a fabulous team here," he said.

Hoadley also said he is proud of the staff's accomplishments within the classroom.

"The faculty here is second to none," he said.

In addition to expressing pride in the district's classrooms, Hoadley said he was proud of the district establishing permanent borders.

The district in 2016 worked with the Columbus City Schools district regarding the "Win-Win" agreement to eradicate the uncertainty Dublin school district families living in "Win-Win" areas would experience every six years, when districts had the opportunity to pull out of the accord with Columbus City Schools.

At issue was the chance those families would have to instead send their children to Columbus City Schools.

Hoadley was hired by Dublin City Schools as superintendent Aug. 1, 2013.

He previously served as superintendent of the Olmsted Falls City School District for nine years and was superintendent of the Van Buren Local School District for six years.
