Findlay City Schools Superintendent Troy Roth is leaving the school district to become the new superintendent at Bellevue City Schools.
Roth has been with Findlay City Schools for seven years, five as assistant superintendent and the last two as superintendent.
Troy tells WFIN News that it was a difficult decision and it came down to what was best for his family, and Bellevue is closer to where he and his wife are from.
As Troy mentioned in the audio above he’s enjoyed his time in Findlay, his three kids all graduated from Findlay High School, and he believes the district has made great strides and is in good hands going forward.
He pointed out the Bellevue, while smaller than Findlay, is similar to Findlay City Schools in that it has strong academics, athletics, performing arts and community support.
The Bellevue City Schools Board of Education will vote on Roth’s hiring at their board meeting this week.
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.
Roth came to Findlay from Margaretta Local Schools which is a little north of Bellevue.
