From the Superintendent : Welcome Back! From the Superintendent : Welcome Back!

Dear West Geauga Residents:

We are preparing to welcome our students back to school for the 2017-2018 school year. Many of our staff members have worked throughout the summer hiring new personnel, securing equipment and supplies, and working to improve our buildings and grounds. Teachers return next Monday, August 21, and students will arrive on Tuesday, August 22.

Fifteen new staff members are joining our ranks this year. In many cases, they replace those who retired or resigned. For the first time in several years, we will have six classes each in grades Kindergarten through Grade Five.

The past school year was a good one for West Geauga. The district received positive recognition and accolades from several national and regional publications including Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, Washington Post, and Cleveland Magazine. Such recognition is a credit to our community and to those who work in and attend its schools.

Thank you for affording us the resources to offer a comprehensive K-12 curriculum and a healthy array of extracurricular programming in athletics and the arts. We value your continued support.


Rich Markwardt, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools

The 2017/2018 School Year is about to begin and we have lots of exciting opportunities for students and families. Buildings will be gradually posting information about the upcoming school year. Parents will also soon be receiving information about how to access our new online forms system that will save time on submitting information to the school buildings.  We hope you have had a safe and healthy summer and look forward to seeing you as you return to school.
