New Oakwood School Superintendent Hired

The Oakwood Unit 76 School Board has selected the district’s new superintendent.  Larry Maynard, currently the Superintendent of the Potomac School District, will become the Oakwood Superintendent effective July 1st.   Maynard will replace current Oakwood Superintendent Gary Lewis.

Lewis has been picked to become the new Regional Superintendent of Schools for Champaign and Ford Counties.

‘’Larry’s going to be a really good fit for the District,’’ said Lewis today (Tuesday) about the Oakwood Board’s selection.  The Oakwood School Board has approved a three-year contract agreement with Maynard.

He still has a few more months to serve as Oakwood Superintendent – but looking back, Lewis says there are some things that have made him proud.  Among them are the hard work that has been done on district finances and advancements in technology.
