Sylvania Schools Selects New Superintendent

After an extensive months-long search, Sylvania Schools Board of Education has selected Dr. Veronica Motley to lead the district as its next superintendent. Currently the Assistant Superintendent of South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools, Motley brings with her three decades of educational experience.

Starting as a math teacher with Akron Public Schools, Motley has experience as an elementary school teacher, dean of students, assistant principal, elementary school principal, Director of Student Services supporting students with special needs, Director of Instruction, and Assistant Superintendent. Motley also served the education community as an adjunct professor in Ashland University’s graduate program.

Sylvania Schools Board of Education President Vicki Donovan-Lyle stated, “I want to welcome Dr. Motley to our district and to our community. This was an interesting time to be searching for new leadership, to say the least, but we were fortunate in that both the candidates and our community were flexible and made it work. We are anxious to get back to school and excited to have our new superintendent at the helm.”
