Randolph has a representative for Waterloo’s superintendent search

Trustee Susan White will represent Randolph in Waterloo schools’ search for a new superintendent, said Trustee John Lampe after Thursday’s meeting.

Faced with the imminent resignation of Waterloo Superintendent Shawn Braman, the school board is putting together an interview committee that involves leaders from each of the two communities it serves.

Having already spoken with Atwater’s trustees, school board President Brian Pusateri outlined the plan to Randolph trustees.

The intent is to include one trustee and one fire department member from Atwater and Randolph on the interview team. The first round of interviews is April 17.

Accessible playground

Trustees also received an update from the Fields Playground Group, which is the driving force behind an all-inclusive playground to be built on state Route 44 at Randolph School Park.

“It’s moving right along,” Lampe said. “We just went out yesterday to put the footprint down—the size of it. We’d like to have everything done by the end of summer. We’re excited about it.”

The playground, which Lampe said is “one of a kind in the state of Ohio,” will be designed so that special needs children can play alongside their peers.
