Community Search Survey
The Circleville City Schools Board of Education would like to thank our vibrant community for their efforts in assisting us with feedback through our early February community stakeholder survey.
As the board looks to make an informed hiring decision regarding the needs of its learners, teachers, and community, school leadership sincerely values our community's input. In lieu of an in-person series of community panels due to the pandemic, this survey will help guide decision making in our hiring process.
Whether you are a member of the Tiger Family - student, staff member, parent, community member - or an interested applicant, the board and school leadership believe in being transparent with all stakeholders as to our application and hiring timeline. While the following timeline is our target, we have seen in the last year, due to the nature of the current pandemic that timelines may need to be adjusted to account for unforeseen circumstances and to account for safety. Any adjustments to this timeline will be communicated here on our superintendent search page and with applicants if and when the need arises.
About Circleville City Schools
The Circleville City School District (CCSD), located approximately 40 minutes south of Columbus, is a PK-12 public education institution serving the City of Circleville in the county seat of Pickaway County. The district, made up of approximately 280 staff members, proudly serves approximately 2,250 students annually across three buildings at Circleville Elementary School, Circleville Middle School, and Circleville High School. While a city school district, all three buildings are located on one centralized campus east of town in a “college-like” set up for ease of use in proximity and staff and student collaboration.
From an academic perspective, the district utilizes a multitude of student-centered graduation pathways en route to a 94.2 percent 4-year graduation rate and a 91.7 percent 5-year graduation rate. Additionally, students at the high school level during the 2019-2020 school year earned over 600 college credits (36 College Credit Plus courses offered) and accrued over $346,000 in scholarships towards post secondary career pursuits. From an early childhood perspective, a literacy-oriented curriculum resulted in 100 percent of Circleville 3rd graders meeting the 3rd grade reading guarantee.
Financially, board and school leadership has worked hard to remain good fiscal stewards of taxpayer dollars seven years after the construction of three new buildings. The district’s community has generously supported our schools through a Permanent Improvement Levy that was passed in November 2000 for 2.75 mills and by way of a 0.75% Continuing Earned Income Tax which was passed in November 2005.
Above all else, the district’s strong connection to its community’s needs goes well beyond solely educating the next generation. For students in grades PK-12, the district provides seven, third party mental health clinicians and offers a three-day-a-week wellness clinic at the elementary school to address health barriers to keeping students in school each day. Additionally, during the pandemic our food services department has rallied to deliver over 160,000 meals to children in our community.
