JP Miklovic

North Baltimore Local Schools will be under new administrative leadership beginning this summer, with Marlene North retiring. Ryan Delaney will be up for approval as the new Superintendent, to replace North, at the Board of Education meeting Tuesday evening.

Delaney was one of three finalists in the interview process for the position, which originally received 21 applications, which was the narrowed to seven first interviews. Then three finalists, including Ted Haselman of Swanton and Michael Ferguson of Rootstown, were invited for a Round Robin (of sorts) interview process on a Saturday afternoon, April 12. The candidates met with staff, the board, the treasurer and the public. They were chauffeured from each site, at the Powell, the high school and the board office by myself, Mayor Mike Julien and Ginger Povenmire.

Ryan is a native of Wooster, Ohio. He

holds an undergraduate degree in elementary education from Akron University, which he attended on a football scholarship. He received a master’s degree in administration, as well as a Superintendent’s Certificate, from Ashland University.

He was a teacher at Montgomery, a Principal at Lincoln and Taft, all in Ashland, Ohio, then he moved to become the Principal of Ben Franklin Elementary School in Newark, Ohio.

He is an adjunct professor at Ashland University and he is the focus of the book, "Mission Accomplished" by Anna T. Erickson, which promotes concepts for quality leadership. Ryan developed and presents a workshop – "Can One Person Make a Difference?" – that champions proven methods for educational success.

In addition to being an experienced educator, Ryan is a self-taught magician. He frequently uses magic to connect with students.

Ryan and his wife Debbie have two grown children.
