ROSSFORD - The Rossford School Board has made its decision on a new superintendent.
Daniel Creps, principal at Woodland Elementary in Perrysburg and a Rossford High School alumnus, was chosen following an executive session Monday night.
However, while he is the board's designated choice, the decision will be formally approved by a vote at the board's next meeting on March 18.
Creps will take over for interim superintendent Bill McFarland. According to a news release, he has signed an initial two-year contract, and will begin April 1.
School Board President Dawn Burks said the board was "tremendously pleased" with Creps as their choice.
"It was a difficult decision," she said in the release. "We had a good and organized process and some great candidates. Our two finalists were both very well received by the staff and community during their interviews. The board worked hard on the search and took the task of superintendent selection very seriously. 
"We spent a good amount of time with each candidate, made reference calls, and talked to lots of people. Dan made a great connection with the board and is looking forward to becoming superintendent in the community where he grew up."
Creps was chosen over a second finalist for the position, Deb Piotrowski, who is superintendent at Xenia City Schools.
Creps held teaching and administrative positions in Sylvania City Schools for 13 years before coming to Perrysburg, where he is completing his sixth year as Woodland's principal.
The board went into executive session following a special meeting Monday night to discuss the appointment and employment of an employee, but initially indicated that no action would be taken following the session.
The timing of the decision in executive session came during Sunshine Week, when news organizations promote open government and freedom of information.
