Paolo DeMaria's 30-year career has focused on school finance and promoting higher student achievement, college readiness and completion, and school choice for families. He was unanimously chosen as Superintendent in 2016.


Prior to his role as Superintendent of Schools, he served in many roles including working for Education First Consulting; serving as chief policy advisor for Governor Robert Taft and Governor George Voinovich; overseeing charter schools, vouchers, and state report cards for the Ohio Department of Education; and serving the Ohio Board of Regents as executive vice chancellor.


The collective experiences have made him an "unabashed cheerleader" for Ohio's public schools as he works to ensure all K-12 schools service students. His own children attended Columbus Public Schools and charter high schools. He has co-authored several publications, including K-12/Higher Education Alignment: An Action Agenda for Increasing Student Success.

Join us for a conversation with Ohio Superintendent of Schools Paolo DeMaria on the challenges and opportunities facing Ohio’s 3,600 public schools and more than 1.6 million students.
