Warren school superintendent resigns

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio - For the third time in three years, the Warren board of education is looking for a new superintendent.

Members of the Warren Board of Education voted to accept Michael Notar's resignation as school superintendent on Tuesday. 

Notar accepted a superintendent position with the Conneaut school district, located in northeastern Ashtabula county along Lake Erie. The district is much smaller than Warren, and Notar says it's what he was looking for in a new position.

"When I was a younger child, I spent a lot of time in the Conneaut area camping and fishing with my family, so when that position opened up I obviously took a look at it. I met with the board and it drew a lot of interest for me, so I pursued it and things worked out," Notar said.

When Notar was hired in Warren two years ago, he had said he wished he could have signed a long term contract. 

"Things change for people professional or personal things. As a family we thought it was the best thing personally and professionally," he said.

Warren has gone through three superintendents in three years. One board member said keeping a superintendent for the long-term is a problem for all urban districts.

"It's difficult to keep good people because they have opportunities if they're making progress to move on and everybody wants them," Robert Faulkner said.

Notar will make $97,000 dollars in the first year of his contract at Conneaut. His official last day with Warren will be July 31st.
