Sycamore Schools selects new superintendent

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        BLUE ASH — Karen Mantia will serve as the new superintendent of Sycamore Schools.

        Ms. Mantia will join the district Sept. 18, after having served 24 years with Northmont City Schools near Dayton — the last eight years as assistant superintendent.

        Thirty candidates had inquired about the position. But after conducting professional screening and two rounds of interviews, soliciting community and staff input and making background checks, the board of education selected Ms. Mantia.

        “What impresses me about Karen is her knowledge of how kids learn,” Board President Don Hirsch said. “Her leadership will assist our teachers in meeting this challenge.”

        Ms. Mantia's salary will be $100,000 a year.
