Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Timothy L. Saxton


Spartan Community,

This is a very special time for the Boardman Local Schools. We celebrate 100 years of producing high school graduates! In 1918, the first class of Boardman High School graduates received their diplomas. To honor this milestone, district leadership and our Alumni Association have worked closely together to create four marquee events.  These events are to honor 100 years of what we value as Spartans:

  • Spartan Families: June 2, 2017 (completed)
  • Spartan Athletics: September 22-23 at the new Spartan Stadium
  • Spartan Arts: January 20, 2018 at the BPAC
  • Spartan Academics: May 2018

I am excited to be entering my second year as the superintendent of the Boardman Local Schools. This is my 16th year serving our school district. I started as the principal of Boardman High School in 2002 and served in that capacity for 11 years. It was a tremendous experience working alongside a powerhouse of high school educators and I was amazed by the student passion and academic focus. In 2013, I took over as Director of Operations. This administrative change allowed me the see the business side of a school district and added to my development as a district leader. Spending those years in a district administrative position reaffirmed that the positive culture that I had witnessed in the high school was entrenched in all seven of our school buildings. In August of 2016, I accepted the challenge of leading the school district and was appointed superintendent.

In these upcoming years, the focus of the Boardman Local Schools will be to:

  • Improve communication with our stakeholders through multiple channels of communication and create true two-way communication that allows authentic feedback from stakeholders back to district leadership
  • Establish consistent and clear expectations of achievement and behavior that permeates all buildings, all grade levels, and all areas of the district
  • To ensure that all students of our community can access a quality educational experience and ultimately graduate from the Boardman Local Schools a transformed and educated citizen.

As we honor the past, we must constantly plan and adapt for the future. Last year we established a new vision statement, “together we transform lives through academics, athletics, and the arts”. These transformations must be adaptable and diverse as we create the next 100 years of Boardman Excellence. 


Go Spartans!

Timothy L. Saxton
