Dr. Richard A. Ross

Biography

The passion Dr. Richard Ross has for improving education for all children in Ohio is rooted in his own childhood experience when a teacher inspired him to pursue a college degree. He has carried this memory throughout his career as a teacher, principal and district superintendent. In any education situation, Dr. Ross searches out educators who possess the gift to improve learning, provide inspiration and make a positive difference in students and their learning.

 

Formerly the superintendent for three Ohio school districts, Dr. Ross believes in a child-first improvement approach by increasing efficiency and performance, eliminating unpopular ineffective programs and making focused staffing decisions. His ability to motivate educators to grow in skills and commitment so they can serve students better is demonstrated in his 20 years at Reynoldsburg City School District where he significantly improved academic achievement during important shifts in community culture and economics.
