Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Tim Saxton


As the Spartan Class of 2018 graduated on June 3, we closed our “100 ” Year  Anniversary Celebration in the Boardman School District. Our events to honor Family, Athletics, the Arts, and Academics  were extremely well attended and greatly enjoyed by all. Most importantly, these events showcased the incredible role that the Boardman School District has played in so many lives and in the very essence of our community itself.  Indeed, Boardman is a nice place to call home--in fact, there is none better!


While the anniversary year may be over, we will continue to celebrate excellence. Community and volunteer support helped pass a critical levy that will enable the district to continue its award winning programs and outstanding classroom instruction for at least the next decade. We cannot thank voters enough!


With gratitude comes this sincere pledge.  Our district has, and will continue to be transparent.  The Board of Education and the Administration are determined to be good stewards of your tax dollars.  We recognize that all Boardman taxpayers are making a sacrifice to support our quality schools. It is our goal to dialogue with state legislators and education leaders in Columbus to address the problems with state school funding, especially as it affects Boardman and other capped districts.  


We encourage all residents to be a part of our school activities: special academic events, athletic competitions, plays, musicals and concerts. As we venture forward, if you have questions or concerns about our school district please take the opportunity to call, email or schedule an appointment and remember; Boardman residents are always invited to share any concerns at our monthly school board meetings.   Please go to the School Board Page on our website to check date, time and location of the next meeting.   


Go Spartans!


Timothy L. Saxton
