Wittwer candidate for Allen County ESC position



Findlay Schools Superintendent Dean Wittwer, who is retiring from that post in July, is being considered for the superintendent job of Allen County’s Educational Service Center.

Wittwer said he was asked to come talk to officials in Allen County about the job last week. Wittwer said he isn’t sure whether he would take the job if it is offered to him.

“It’s one of the opportunities I’m considering,” Wittwer said. “There’s a couple others.”

Wittwer, who started in education as an art teacher, had his first teaching job in Allen County, he said.

“I know the area pretty well,” he said.

Wittwer spent the past nine years as Findlay’s superintendent, and for 12 years before that was superintendent of Wapakoneta schools.

Wittwer, who is stepping down at the end of July, will be replaced by Edward Kurt, superintendent of Margaretta Schools.
