Parents do their research on Lakota's prospective Superintendent

WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) -
Lakota parent Nora Rubinoff's been reading reports of a new superintendent coming to her son's district all day.
 
"I'm really proud of the school district," Rubinoff said.
 
Rubinoff says she's thrilled that the new hire is said to be coming from outside of the district.
 
"The fact that she's not coming from within the Lakota School District, in my opinion, is a real plus for us, we need a fresh perspective," Rubinoff said.
 
On Thursday the school board will likely vote to elect Karen Mantia who has been Superintendent of the Pickerton school district near Columbus since 2007, and also served as Superintendent of Sycamore Schools.
 
" I think that her perspectives will be in line with what we're looking for in our district," Rubinoff said.
 
Mantia was recently awarded the 2011 Ohio Superintendent Outstanding Performance award and according to the district's website voters in the Pickerington district will face a 5.5 mill operating levy in August. Rubinoff hopes Mantia's experience with similar financial issues facing the Lakota district will ultimately benefit Lakota students.
 
"The fact that she has recently dealt with a district that's going through some of the same budget pains that many districts around the state of Ohio are going through, is certainly a help," Rubinoff said.
 
The Lakota school board will vote on hiring a new superintendent during a special public meeting Thursday at 1:45pm at the central office.
