Message from the Superintendent: 

Dear Talawanda Community,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

I am honored and excited to serve the students and Talawanda community as your superintendent!  I look forward to working with the outstanding students, parents, families, staff, local agencies, businesses, and the community as a whole to ensure each student reaches his or her potential, has an innovative and exceptional education, and is prepared for life beyond high school as a respectful, insightful, and contributing member of society.

Talawanda School District is a unique and diverse school district.  There are three elementary buildings, one middle school, and one high school.  71% of our students attend a college or university, 2% attend a post secondary technical institution, 4% enter the military and 23% enter the job market.  Our school district offers many different types of curricular programs such as 19 honors course, 9 AP courses, College Credit Plus, and FFA courses Our students who take the ACT consistently achieve above the state average.  

This coming year, we will be building the last new elementary building.  Marshall Elementary students and staff will have a new building. In recent years TSD has constructed 2 new elementary buildings without a levy, and will start on a third soon.  Our financial stewardship resulted in a high rating as well as ensuring the Talawanda School District is able to provide the many different types of curricular and athletic programs, clubs, after school activities while being innovative.

Our partnership with Miami University, University of Cincinnati, local businesses, families and businesses advances our commitment and successes.  Our community comes together and understands it takes a village to raise a child. Our talented staff works hard to make our schools a place where your child wants to come each and every day to challenge themselves, socialize, develop life-long learning skills, and to achieve all that they can achieve as productful citizens prepared to contribute and meet any challenge found within society.  

We will continue to ensure school safety, outstanding and innovative instruction, and instill respect, honesty, courage, compassion, and responsibility in our students.  There is a SRO assigned to each school building. Three Social Workers have been hired this year to provide additional supports and services. Over the next few years, we will continue to build upon the district’s tradition of excellence as well as attain greater levels of achievement and opportunities for all of our students.

Again, I welcome you to the Talawanda School District family!  Talawanda is an outstanding school district! It is an honor and privilege to serve as the superintendent of the Talawanda School District. We encourage you to become an active community and school member. I look forward to an amazing school year!

Ed Theroux
