From the Desk of Dr. Chad Coffman

I would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome I have received at Lakota.  I have enjoyed meeting many people and I look forward to meeting the students, parents, staff members, and community members.  The district’s Open House is August 17th.  New families to Lakota are welcome to come from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.   The General Open House is from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00  p.m.  Please do not hesitate to introduce yourself.  My goal  is to learn all I can about the Lakota School District and the community.  The best way for that to happen is meeting and talking with people.  A second way is by going to the link which will give you access to a short survey asking for what you are most proud of and areas of improvement for the Lakota Schools.  I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.

I am very excited to begin my first superintendent position.  I was a high school principal for 15 years at Avon High School and Parma Senior High and I worked in the central office at Parma the past school year.  The opportunity of working in a district with friendly and supportive people as well as having a beautiful school facility is a dream come true.

I believe in making decisions in the best interest of our students.  I look forward in working with the staff, parents, community members, and students in continuing to provide an excellent educational experience for our students.
