WELCOME to our new assistant superintendent

Mr. Baker joins our leadership team as a familiar face in the school district following his employment from 1993 – 2005 as teacher and administrator.

I look forward to partnering with the Reynoldsburg learning community to continue the excellence that is Reynoldsburg City Schools,”  Mr. David Baker.
