Superintendent Karen Mantia Regarding those potential cuts, Logan and Lakota Superintendent Karen Mantia have recently told the community that the school district is currently in the analysis phase.
...
That is not a great position to be in," Mantia told the school board Nov. 28.
...
Wheatley also told the Enquirer the district's new superintendent - Karen Mantia who began work in August - will help any future levy efforts.
...
Was the "lack of public trust" caused by the rift between school board members or was it due to the longtime complaint from community members that the board of education did a poor job of communicating (something Mantia is working to change)?

Dr. Karen Mantia Lakota Local School District, Butler County â€" At its June 16 Special Meeting, the Lakota Board of Education unanimously approved the hiring of Dr. Karen Mantia as the district’s new superintendent. “Dr. Mantia is a transformational leader with a unique combination of skills and experience to lead our district; a proven track record of academic success, in-depth knowledge of finance and business operations, and building strong community support for the schools,†said Ben Dibble, Board Vice President and Search Committee Chair. “She is truly the CEO we were looking for to lead this district through our challenges and to realize our opportunities.†Mantia will transition to the district in July, and plans to begin full time in early August.
...
Mantia is looking forward to joining the district and understands the issues facing students, parents, educators, and the community at large. “I’m honored to be selected and believe that through a clear vision, community involvement, and collaboration, we can manage the fiscal challenges facing Lakota and continue the excellent academic results. We will build on the district’s successes and advance the 21st century learning experience for the children.â€
Mantia has been superintendent of Pickerington Local Schools, with 10,500 students and nearly 1,000 district employees, for the past four years, and previously served as superintendent of Piqua City Schools and Sycamore Community Schools. At both Pickerington and Sycamore, she guided each district from a Continuous Improvement to Excellent or Excellent with Distinction rating on the state’s report card.
Recently, Dr. Mantia was the recipient of Martha Holden Jennings Foundation 2011 Superintendent of Outstanding Performance Award. The Pickerington Chamber also recognized Mantia for her leadership in the community and awarded her the ATHENA Award, recognizing womens business leadership in the community. In her selection, Chamber President Mayle lauded Mantia for involvement in the community and said “Her commitment to innovation, fiscal responsibility, academic achievement and social engagement has been the foundation of each and every success in her career.â€
...
Also, Mantia has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Dayton and Wright State University.
Mantia earned her bachelor and master’s degrees at Wright State University, and her doctor of education at University of Sarasota, Florida. Mantia will begin her new role August 1. Her annual salary is set at $165,000. Vice President Dibble said “This salary is competitive with market data for a comparable large and complex Ohio public school district. In our community dialogue that consisted of focus groups, surveying and conversations, we heard that around 80% of the respondents wished to see a leader compensated at the market rate.â€
Dr. Mantia was selected from 25 applications received from over 350 people contacted by the search firm.
