Reynoldsburg Schools Announce Ogden as New Superintendent

REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio (WCMH) — The City of Reynoldsburg Schools District has its new superintendent.

Garilee Ogden was announced as the district’s new superintendent in a statement from the Reynoldsburg School Board on Tuesday.

“[Garilee] Ogden impressed the board with his academic and teaching background, his
passion for fostering meaningful relationships and his desire to always put children first,” said
Debbie Dunlap, President of Reynoldsburg BOE in the statement. “She has solid experience in developing a
a supportive and thriving culture in her school district that empowers educators to educate and
students to grow and develop. His leadership enabled staff at Groveport Madison
address the whole child, promote lifelong discovery and cultivate positive learning
environment for all in an equitable and empathetic manner.

On Monday, the district said Ogdon, who is currently local schools superintendent in Groveport Madison, was a finalist for the job, along with Columbus City Schools area superintendent Dr. Corey Grubbs.

The superintendent search has been ongoing since April 19, when the Reynoldsburg School Board hired the firm Finding Leaders to find a replacement for outgoing superintendent, Dr. Melvin J. Brown, who was named the new superintendent of schools at Montgomery, in Alabama.

A special board meeting will be held on May 26 to determine Ogden’s start date.
