Crestwood Local School District Appoints Aireane Curtis as New Superintendent


The Crestwood Board of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Aireane Curtis as the new Superintendent. She will begin officially on August 1st 2024 

Mr. Dan Tillett, Board of Education President, states that the outstanding Crestwood community and the School District’s commitment to enhancing the educational program for the community’s

students attracted 25 applications including 4 current Superintendents. Working with the

Educational Service Center of the Western Reserve, the search consultants, and the Board identified the skill sets and experiences the district needs the next Superintendent to possess. The process was greatly enhanced by the involvement of over 30 stakeholders representing the communities, school district employees, and school district students. The stakeholders assisted with identifying the skill sets and experiences needed as well as meeting with candidates.

“I am looking forward to getting to work in Crestwood.  While I’ve attended conferences and training with staff through the years, I’m excited to get in and get to know all staff members.  In addition, I am excited to meet the students and families of the Crestwood schools!”  

Ms. Curtis brings a wealth of experience as an educator and administrator. She began her career as a second-grade teacher before transitioning to a Curriculum Consultant role at the Portage County Educational Service Center and later at the Cuyahoga County ESC. In 2013, she was promoted to Assistant Superintendent/Curriculum Director at Streetsboro City Schools, serving until 2019. She then accepted a Superintendent position at Windham Exempted Village Schools.  

During her tenure at Windham Exempted Village Schools, Ms. Curtis achieved numerous successes. She has increased capacity of the student food pantry that assists over 250 students per week including bags sent home with students and a drive-up food pantry for families. She also secured a nurse practitioner from Akron Children’s Hospital to service the students regularly. Her commitment to improving opportunities has led to significant academic success for the students.

Ms. Curtis holds a Master of Education from Kent State University and an Administrative Leadership Degree from Salem International University. She also has a Gifted Endorsement from the University of Cincinnati and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Otterbein College.

The Crestwood Local School District is confident that Ms. Curtis will be an exceptional leader, bringing innovative ideas and a strong commitment to student success. The district eagerly anticipates the positive impact she will make in her new role as Superintendent.
