The Switzerland of Ohio Local School District Board of Education held a special session board meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Two big pieces of news came out of the meeting.

The primary news was that Board of Education member Rob Caldwell resigned from the board. Caldwell’s resignation comes because he was hired by the district as principal for Sardis and Hannibal elementaries.

Caldwell will replace principal Jana Thomas who resigned to return to teaching. Caldwell brings a wealth of experience after teaching special education at Tyler Consolidated for the past several years. Superintendent Larry Elliott said of the hiring (and Caldwell’s resignation from the board), “We’re very fortunate that we had a quality gentleman such as Rob Caldwell agree to leave his current position at Tyler Consolidated and take over the reigns at Hannibal/Sardis. He’ll be missed as a board member, but he’ll bring a lot of value as an administrator.”

The other big news coming out of the meeting is that the board is getting serious about moving River High School students due to the renovation process. The board directed administration to have a plan in place to move RHS students to the old Monroe Central campus at Swiss Hills Career Center.
