Superintendent's Message

Dear JA Parents and School Community,

I want to thank you for checking our District’s website.  Our goal is to continue to work in providing relevant and timely information to our students, staff, parents and community through the various links and sites available at www.alder.k12.oh.us.  I am hopeful that you will see why we place such an emphasis on our mission in providing greater opportunity, flexibility and accessibility for all of our students.    

As the superintendent of Jonathan Alder I am extremely grateful for a supportive community of residents, parents, alumni and business partners who take tremendous pride in our school district.  These partnerships combined with a dynamic team of educators, support staff and administrators allows us to remain relentless in our focus on taking care of our kids each and every day.  

Needless to say, Covid continues to present all of us with many unique and difficult challenges on a daily basis. This, in turn, reminds us of the importance and power of extending grace, compassion and understanding to each other.  We will continue to maximize the educational opportunities for all of our students, as we tirelessly work in safely returning to Full-time, In-person learning as soon as possible. 

Again, I hope you find what you are looking for.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to give me a call at 614.873.5621 and/or email at [email protected]g.  


Gary Chapman

. . . striving to provide the opportunity, flexibility and accessibility our students need to achieve, compete and succeed.
