State Supt. Paolo DeMaria Visits Worthington City Schools and Hilliard City Schools


By: Staff Blogger

Strategy one in Each Child, Our Future aims to increase the supply of highly effective teachers and leaders in our schools. Great educators have a tremendous impact on student learning. Today, State Supt. Paolo DeMaria visited two schools led by principals who exemplify what it means to be highly effective.

Granby Elementary School in Worthington City Schools is led by Patti Schlaegel. Principal Schlaegel is a transformational leader, who was honored as the 2019 Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators’ Distinguished Principal of the Year. The Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators also recognized J.W. Reason Elementary in Hilliard City Schools as a School of Honor for the work they do to help their diverse student population. Jacki Prati, principal at J.W. Reason, makes time to complete a home visit with every English learner — 20 percent of the student population — to better understand their needs. It is a privilege to have leadership like this in Ohio’s schools.
