The Groveport Madison Local Schools Board of Education voted to employ Jamie Grube as the District's next superintendent. Grube was awarded a three-year contract beginning on August 1, 2022. Details of the agreement are yet to be finalized.
Grube has been the District’s deputy superintendent since July 2018 and is currently serving as interim superintendent.
“Over the four years he has served as our Deputy Superintendent, Jamie has demonstrated his leadership skills and understanding of the District’s needs,” said Board President Chris Snyder. “He shares the Board's vision for the school district and has built positive, trusting relationships with our staff and many of our community’s leaders. He definitely has the skills, experiences, and relationships needed to move the District forward.”
"It's truly an honor to be selected as superintendent of Groveport Madison Schools," said Grube. "Despite disruptions from the impact of the COVID pandemic, we've accomplished a great deal over the past few years. I plan to use that foundation and our dedicated and hard-working staff to build our capacity to improve student academic achievement. We will also continue our efforts to provide more social-emotional support for students and staff and to continue to create an environment where we honor respect and appreciation for one another’s contributions, perspectives, and uniqueness.
