Rossford chooses new school superintendent

ROSSFORD, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Rossford Board of Education has named Daniel Creps as its new superintendent.

Creps is currently a principal in the Perrysburg School District and an alumni of Rossford High School.

According to Board President Dawn Burks, Creps will take over for interim superintendent Bill McFarland on April 1, 2013, for a two-year contract.

"It was a difficult decision.  We had a good and organized process and some great candidates," said Burks. "We spent a good amount of time with each candidate, made many reference calls, and talked to lots of people.  Dan made a great connection with the Board and is looking forward to becoming superintendent in the community where he grew up."

Creps said he's been working toward a superintendent position his entire career, saying he viewed it as the ultimate goal when he first started in education.

He taught in the Sylvania School District for many years before becoming assistant principal at Arbors Hill Junior High and later principal at Sylvan Elementary. He's been with Woodland Elementary in Perrysburg for six years, but said he's looking forward to moving on to Rossford City Schools.

"Professionally, it's of course a wonderful opportunity for me," Creps said. "And personally, it's also very rewarding to be able to go back to a community that provided you the foundation for success and experiencing a great life, and be able to contribute back to that same community that gave you so much."

Creps has signed a 2-year contract. The Board will formally approve and introduce Creps at its March 18 board meeting. All staff and community members are invited to attend.
