Superintendent’s Message

Happy Spring, OVESC community!

We are in the last quarter of the school year. It is hard to believe another year is almost in the books.

We want to take this opportunity to thank all of our member school districts for allowing us to come serve and help educate their students. We want to thank all the teachers who have welcomed us into their classrooms, the principals who have invited us into their buildings, and the district level administrators who have looked to us for assistance and guidance with challenges they face when managing curriculum and running operations. The OVESC strives to maintain a #serve mentality and this can not be accomplished without the willingness and acceptance of our member districts.

This region should be very proud of their local school districts. I, personally, have had the privilege of serving in different districts from different regions and I can say that the Ohio Valley is well represented with teachers, administrators, support staff, and Boards of Education that care about kids. The work being done is always centered around the best interests of the students!

Again, on behalf of the employees of the OVESC, the administration, and the Governing Board, Thank You, Belpre City, Crooksville Exempted, Fort Frye Local, Frontier Local, Marietta City, Morgan Local, Switzerland of Ohio, Warren Local, Mid-East CTC, Washington County CTC, and Swiss Hills Vocational schools for your service to kids and communities.
