    Leadership Promoting High Achievement and Fiscal Accountability

    Elected by our community, the Solon Board of Education works as a team with a common goal – ensuring students achieve personal excellence. As a board, their role is setting policy that moves the district toward that goal. The board fosters a collaborative Strategic Planning process that brings together parents, staff and community representatives to develop a strategic and action-oriented educational vision with measurable goals for student learning and engagement.

    The Solon Board of Education is accountable to the community to ensure students receive the best education program possible while at the same time serving as a responsible fiscal steward of district funds. As advocates for strong public schools, Solon school board members also promote healthy dialogue with the community. They proactively communicate district needs to the public and relay community expectations to the district’s administrative leadership.

    The elected board leadership keeps the district mission of every child every day at the forefront of its decision-making, reflecting the district belief that quality education is worth the investment of time, effort and financial resources.

    Solon Board of Education members welcome your questions or comments at any time.
