Cleveland City Schools superintendent Russell Dyer has been selected as a Superintendent to Watch for 2020 by the National School Public Relations Association.
Annually, the association recognizes up to 25 educators. Dyer was honored for his use of communication technology to launch multiple initiatives within the Cleveland community. According to a news release sent by the district, Dyer continues to push the district by making communication one of four key areas in its recently adopted strategic plan.
Projects mentioned ranged from the Blended Learning and Digital Enhancement Project that blends innovative teaching and learning methods with technology, to the opening of Candy's Creek Cherokee Elementary School. Also under Dyer's leadership, according to the news release, the district expanded its social media platforms and website.
The news release concluded: "NSPRA noted this continual effort to promote two-way communication and community outreach across the district as a major reason why Dyer was selected as a Superintendent to Watch for 2020."
Dyer — along with Hamilton County Schools Superintendent Bryan Johnson — will be featured in an upcoming issue of 'NSPRA This Week' and at the association's conference in July 2021.
Dyer will also be recognized at the September meeting of the Cleveland City Schools Board of Education.
