LEBANON, Ohio — Lebanon City School District's superintendent will retire at the end of the calendar year, the district announced Thursday.
Todd Yohey has served as the district’s superintendent since 2016. Prior to Lebanon, Yohey served as superintendent in the Oak Hills Local School District and the Ross Local School District for a total of 33 years in public education. Yohey will be moving on to a position outside of education starting in January 2021.
Yohey said his decision to leave in the middle of the academic year was personal.
"My decision is a personal one, made with my family, and in no way reflects my relationship with the current Board of Education or any of its members," Yohey said in a news release. "I have not been asked to resign or retire. In fact, I have turned down offers to stay. I look back on my career in education with great memories, great relationships, and great comfort in knowing that my work with others has made a difference in the lives of thousands of students. I am grateful to the Lebanon students, staff, Board, and community for a wonderful way to end my career in education.”
Lebanon officials said they will be discussing Yohey’s retirement at their November 23 Board of Education meeting.
