North Ridgeville Schools Ranger Round-Up

Message from NRCS Superintendent – January 7, 2022

Dear NRCS Families,

Happy New Year! I hope you and your family had a safe and enjoyable holiday season and took time to relax. As we transition into 2022, you will notice a few changes in the district.

On January 4, 2022, at the Board of Education meeting, Mr. Jeff Grigsby was sworn in as a new board member. Mr. Grigsby replaces Ms. Kristen Iezzi, who plans to spend more time with her family. We are grateful for Ms. Iezzi and her commitment to serving the North Ridgeville City Schools for the past four years. I also want to congratulate Mr. Frank Vacha, who was reelected as the Board of Education president, and Ms. Marci Saxon, who was reelected as the Board of Education vice president. We are thankful for their continued leadership throughout the North Ridgeville Community.

Additionally, this week, NRCS held its initial Coffee and a Conversation with the superintendent. As a district, we continuously seek opportunities for community engagement. Coffee and a Conversation gives me the opportunity to listen to community members and answer questions they have about the district. Coffee and a Conversation gives residents, who otherwise may not have students in our schools, the chance to build a connection with the district. The next meeting is on Tuesday, February 15, from 8:30-9:30 a.m. at City Hall with Mayor Kevin Corcoran. Additional dates are listed in the newsletter

Finally, while not unique to NRCS, we have experienced staffing shortages throughout the year. Despite this challenge, we have been fortunate to maintain a five-day, in-person calendar. While we hope it will not become necessary, the possibility of short-term remote learning has been part of our Ranger Reopening plan since the beginning of the school year. Should we experience a situation that would prevent us from staffing our buildings, families should prepare for a sudden shift to remote learning if we experience extreme staff shortages.

Sincerely, Roxann Ramsey-Caserio, Superintendent
