Buckeye Central hires interim chief

During a special meeting Wednesday, Buckeye Central Board of Education named Todd Martin as interim superintendent.

Martin currently is superintendent of Colonel Crawford Local School District and is to help assist Buckeye Central part time as the district looks for a permanent replacement for former Superintendent Tara Meyerink, who resigned earlier this month.

According to a statement issued by the board, “The BC Board is confident this interim arrangement will work because of the strength of the BC staff and community, as well as the professionalism of Martin.”

The board is to begin a search for a full-time replacement of the superintendent. The board has initiated discussions with Ohio School Boards Association and Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center concerning the search process.

Martin can be reached through the BC Administrative Office at (419) 492-2864 or at
