Dr. Ruslan Slutsky was appointed at a special Board of Education meeting this morning. Welcome, Dr. Slutsky!
After four hours of interviews and deliberation last night, the Sylvania Board of Education has chosen Dr. Ruslan Slutsky to fill the seat recently vacated by Stephen Rothschild. Dr. Slutsky is a professor in the Department of Teacher Education at The University of Toledo. He holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree in child development, and a PhD in early childhood education. Having previously experienced the classroom as an early education teacher, Dr. Slutsky now prepares other teachers for the profession. He also has two children in the district and is involved with a variety of community and professional organizations. His vast education knowledge and experience will be an invaluable addition to the Board and to our district. We welcome Dr. Slutsky and look forward to swearing him in this Friday at 8:30am during a special board meeting at the Bradley J. Rieger Administration Building.
Thank you to the eight finalists for meeting last night and to all the applicants for stepping forward to offer your talents to our district. Sylvania is fortunate to have so many passionate, dedicated individuals who care so much about our children and our community.
