Mr. Detwiler










Let me introduce myself.  I am Jon Detwiler, Superintendent of Lakota Local Schools.   As a Lakota resident for over 20 years, I know what kind of students and families make up this community.  Our residents are a hardworking, honest group of people that believe in quality schools and support their children’s education.

There are many exciting things happening for our students!  We have recently improved our academic status with the Ohio Department of Education and I believe the future has never been brighter for our school district.  There are good things happening in every area.  I truly believe we are poised for greatness.

I look forward to meeting you.  If you see me at an event, please feel free to come over and introduce yourself.  If you have questions, please call my office at any time.

Jon Detwiler

Go Raiders!!
