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  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, we are excited for our students and families as we return to full-time in-person education.  Thank you to our amazing teachers and staff for their leadership in ensuring a safe return to our buildings and classrooms.   

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]
