With significant decreases in State funding, it has become even more paramount to create additional efficiencies to maximize funding received. The efforts of our Treasurer’s office has not gone unnoticed – they have received the Association of School Business Officials International Meritorious Budget Award in back-to-back years, recognizing excellence in preparation and presentation of our District’s budget. Without our community’s support, Strongsville Schools would not be where it is today. We have extremely engaged parents, who collaborate with our teachers to support students. Our PTA Council continues to be intimately involved through fundraisers, volunteer hours, and financial grants. Our local civic organizations and business community

are also great advocates and partners, as we continue to develop additional ways for organizations to participate in the growth and development of our students. Our goal at Strongsville City Schools is to build and strengthen a collaborative atmosphere, dedicated to always working in the best interest of our students. We need you as a partner for our District to continue reaching our shared goal of excellence for our students and community. Whether it is attending an athletics event, enjoying a concert by our talented musicians, or volunteering in our classrooms, we appreciate the important connections being made between our schools, students, teachers, staff, and our overall community. I look forward to working with our parents and community in the coming year. If I can be of any assistance, please contact me at 440-572-7010 or cryba@scsmustangs.org or visit our website (www.strongnet.org) for additional information about our District. Go Mustangs!
