Dear Reynoldsburg City Schools Families,
As you know, a team of administrators, teachers, staff and
students have provided input and worked towards building an experience for all
ninth graders for the 2019-20 school year. This experience, called The
9X Impact, will provide a robust high school transition anchored in
tackling the challenges of the fiercely competitive and constantly changing 21st
Century educational landscape.
As a part of this process, we have been actively looking to
fill positions for The 9X Impact. I am excited to announce that Mr. Christopher
Brooks has been named The 9X Impact Leader effective
January 1, 2019.
Mr. Brooks will work directly in a high-performing environment that will be the nexus of reforming our high school educational experience and will have a direct impact on students in Reynoldsburg. He will advance the District’s Mission, engage in teaching and learning practices, create a positive school culture of support while inspiring students to be successful as they begin their high school careers.
Mr. Brooks and The 9X Impact will be based at Reynoldsburg High School’s Livingston Campus. Currently, Mr. Brooks serves as the Principal of Waggoner Road Middle School, and previously, he oversaw the entire Waggoner Road Campus as the Lead Middle Level Principal.
“My purpose as a leader and learner is to foster an optimal learning community that equips teachers with tools and strategies to engage students in active, high-level learning environments,” said Mr. Brooks. “I strive each day to ‘Make It Matter.’ It is my goal to ensure my students develop the skills, habits of mind and knowledge needed to become contributing members of our society.”
Mr. Brooks has been a member of Reynoldsburg City Schools’ staff since 2007. He has his Bachelor of Music in Music Education and Master of Education in Educational Administration from Bowling Green State University, in Bowling Green, Ohio, and is working towards a certificate in School Management and Leadership from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
This also means that we will immediately begin the search process to identify Mr. Brooks’ successor as Principal at Waggoner Road Middle School. Please know that placing the best leader in this role is going to be a top priority for us and our students will not see any disruption to their school experiences.
Please join me in welcoming Mr. Brooks to the future of
Reynoldsburg High School and The 9X Impact!
