(June 05, 2018) – Wooster City School District is pleased to welcome Steve Furlong as the new principal of Parkview Elementary. Furlong, who has been serving the district as the assistant principal of Edgewood Middle School, will be officially hired into his new position on June 26 at the Board of Education meeting. He will be replacing Sara Crooks in leading Parkview Elementary.
After being a member of the Wooster community for four years and serving the Wooster City School District for five years, Furlong felt the position at Parkview Elementary was a terrific opportunity and the perfect chance for personal and professional growth.
“I am excited for this opportunity,” said Furlong. “Taking on any new position requires some adjustment time, but I am confident in my experiences and past district leadership roles. I know we will provide our students and staff a safe, respectful and fun environment to learn and teach in every day.”
Furlong is most looking forward to meeting and building strong relationships with the Parkview Elementary students, staff and families as he begins his new role as principal for the 2018-2019 school year.
“We are thrilled to have Steve as the new Parkview principal,” said Superintendent Dr. Michael Tefs. “He has done an excellent job helping to lead the middle school as an assistant principal and has been as asset to the Wooster City School District and greater community. We look forward to seeing his work at Parkview.”
Furlong has a daughter and son who are both students in the Wooster City School District and his wife, Becky, serves as the school system’s director of technology.
