FCS Names Interim Superintendent For Next School Year

The Findlay City Schools Board of Education has approved for Assistant Superintendent Krista Crates-Miller to be the interim superintendent for the 2022-23 school year.

School Board President Matt Cooper points out that, with many districts currently engaged in superintendent searches and after consulting with OSBA (Ohio School Boards Association) which has assisted the board of education with previous searches, now is not an appropriate time to begin a search.

“We believe this is the right option for FCS and the community as a whole at this time. We are confident that our decision to move forward with Mrs. Crates-Miller, as an FCS veteran educator and administrator, will allow us to move forward with the progress and momentum that has been evolving, even throughout the pandemic.”

Krista grew up in Findlay and attended Findlay City Schools where she graduated in 1987.

She then started teaching with the district in 1993 in various roles.

She has continued in multiple capacities within the district, including her first leadership role in 2013 as a principal.

Findlay City Schools Superintendent Troy Roth is leaving the school district to become the new superintendent at Bellevue City Schools.

He expects his last day at Findlay City Schools to be in the middle of July and his first day at Bellevue City Schools will be August 1st.
