District Superintendents Participate in their Students’ Lab Activities

On March 5, Maplewood Career Center welcomed 10 superintendents from its associate school districts to spend time with their students enrolled at Maplewood.

The morning began with breakfast for all superintendents in Maplewood’s Maple Leaf Restaurant. Following breakfast, the superintendents visited classrooms based on which program their student(s) were enrolled.

The superintendents who visited Maplewood Career Center included: Superintendent Dennis Honkala from Ravenna Local School District; Superintendent David Heflinger from Field Local School District; Superintendent Andrew Hawkins from Rootstown Local School District; Superintendent Shawn Braman from Waterloo Local School District; Superintendent Michael Daulbaugh from Streetsboro City School District; Superintendent David Toth from Crestwood Local Schools; Superintendent Ted Lysiak from James A. Garfield Local Schools; Superintendent John Knapp from Mogadore Local School District, Robert Dunn from Southeast Local Schools, and Laura Amero from Windham Local Schools.

“This is one of my favorite days of the whole year. It is a great experience to see the kids in their environment and be able to witness what they’re doing,” said Hawkins. “To see the passion they have for their trade and for them to share that with me is just outstanding. It’s definitely rewarding for me to see what they are accomplishing.”

During the event, students worked alongside their homeschool superintendents to teach them about their current projects, as well as give them the opportunity to participate.

“Today, the superintendents of the 10 schools associated with Maplewood were given the chance to reconnect with students from their district and learn about their programs,” said Maplewood Superintendent Randall Griffith. “It’s a great opportunity for them to see the students working and for the students to get to spend some time with them. It’s an excellent opportunity for them to see some of the skills the kids are developing while they are here.”
