Superintendent's Message

Spartan Community,


I am truly honored and excited to become the next superintendent of the Boardman Local Schools. This will be my 15th 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. Now, in August of 2016, as I transition into the superintendent’s office, I am confident that I am fully prepared to lead the Boardman Local Schools for the challenges ahead.


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

  • Improve communication with our stakeholders through utilizing multiple channels of communication and creating 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.


I believe the Boardman Local School District presents a complete package to the students of our community. Students can pursue their passions in the academics, the arts, and the athletic realm. No local district can offer that type of experience. However, as Boardman educators, we cannot rest and be satisfied with the levels our programs have attained. We must constantly analyze, adapt, and improve in order to be successful in a dynamic world.


Go Spartans!

Timothy L. Saxton

Superintendent, Boardman Local Schools

...together we transform lives through academics, athletics, and the arts
