Garaway’s outgoing superintendent says he’s enjoyed his time with the district. Darryl Jones is stepping down July 1st after nearly three years on the job. Jones, a first time superintendent, says he and the board of education were forced to make some difficult financial decisions early on as the result of funding cuts at the state level. He says he’s pleased they were able to trim the district’s budget by a half million dollars without cutting teachers. Jones also says he appreciates the staffs’ willingness to take on the extra work with no increase in pay. Jones says he’s also pleased that they were able to get the ball rolling with the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission on addressing the district’s aging buildings. Jones says the next chapter of his life includes taking some time off in July before starting a new career at his family’s potato chip business in Mansfield. Replacing Jones as superintendent is Garaway High School Principal Teresa Alberts.
