Superintendent's Message


Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members, 

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 available at www.alder.k12.oh.us.  I am hopeful that you will see why we place so much emphasis on providing even greater opportunity, flexibility and accessibility for our students in supporting the overall “student experience” at JA. 

Positive, supportive relationships are what students need to feel and be successful.  Relationships that encourage students to engage and embrace his/her educational experience while at Alder.  We also never underestimate the significance of the relationships we have with you, our families and our community, in strengthening and supporting our students in their achievements and success.  And, 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. 

I invite your participation in our schools.  Whether you volunteer in one of our classrooms, attend a student performance or cheer us on at a sporting event, your dedication to JA is vital to our continued growth and success.

If you have a question or concern, please give me a call at 614.873.5621 and/or email at [email protected].  You can also connect with me at one of our school's events or student performances.
