New school district has staff in place

        MONROE — Ohio's newest school district — the 3-week-old Monroe Local Schools — now has an administrative team, teachers and a school calendar. And next week, officials will move into temporary office space in the former Monroe Police Station on Lebanon Street.

        “Things are starting to fall into place so well, my assistance is only going to be needed in three areas,” said interim Superintendent Dan Hare, just after recommending the administrators and before announcing his resignation, effective Monday. “I'm not de- serting, just finishing my work a little quicker than anticipated. It's been a pleasure and honor to serve your children. I won't be far away.”

        Mr. Hare, who is superintendent of the Butler County Educational Service Center, began working with Monroe residents last fall. When the board was seated in April, he was formally named interim superintendent and has worked on transition issues.

        During the next week or so, he will finish the division of assets document with the Middletown Schools, conclude transportation negotiations and work with the Ohio Tax Commission to make sure voted levies in the combined school district continue in Monroe Local.
