Welcome to Manchester Local School District

     I would like to welcome you to Manchester Local School District, home of the Greyhounds! It is a privilege to continue being part of such a tremendous community while serving you in this capacity. I am a fervent advocate of servant leadership; therefore, my philosophical belief is that I, as superintendent, am here to serve our students and families of the Manchester community, as well as those students open enrolled from our neighboring districts. We take great pride in our instructional strategies utilized district-wide from preschool through twelfth grade, staff’s incorporation of Positive Behavior Intervention Supports, and supporting and facilitating student learning with the ultimate goal of producing graduates who are college and/or career ready.

     Manchester Local Schools has an incredible and dedicated staff that is truly student-centered. Our school district has built a culture of respect and serving the needs of each student, while maintaining rigorous curricula across grade levels. Furthermore, Manchester Local Schools provides a wide array of academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular opportunities throughout the course of the school year. Our Manchester Educational & Activity Center offers opportunities for our community and the surrounding areas to engage in physical fitness activities, as well as hosting your organization’s meetings.

     I welcome you to come visit our beautiful campus to learn more about our commitment to educating our future’s leaders. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 937-549-4777 ext. 3119 or email me at brian.rau@mlsd.us.  Go Greyhounds!
