New Principal Selected at E.H. Greene Intermediate
Sycamore Community Schools is excited to announce the hiring of a new principal at E.H. Greene Intermediate, pending Board approval.
Mr. Jay Meno was selected to lead the Grades 5-6 building after a rigorous interview process. Mr. Meno is currently the assistant principal at E.H. Greene Intermediate School.
“Mr. Meno has some great ideas about how he will continue to lead the building in a positive direction,” said Chad Lewis, superintendent. “He impressed the interview panels with his collaborative leadership, student-centered focus, and knowledge of the 5-6 grade levels.”
Mr. Meno joined the administrative team at E.H. Greene Intermediate in 2017. During that time, he has served as special education case manager for over 70 students. He also served as testing coordinator and facilitated as an instructional leader through evaluations, subject leader and teacher leader meetings. Mr. Meno initiated a schedule that led to additional instructional time and a differentiated intervention and enrichment bell. He also coordinated student transitions for students between grade levels and buildings and developed a building safety plan.
“I am super excited for the opportunity to partner with our staff and students to grow upon the great things that are already happening at the Greene School,” said Meno. “After five years, I truly feel like I am a part of the Sycamore Family. It really means so much to me and I will give my full effort to make sure our students receive the opportunities they deserve.”
Mr. Meno has served on the district’s Strategic Planning Team, the Safe and Secure Committee, and the School Design Team.
Mr. Meno previously served as the assistant principal at Middletown Middle School for three years. He also taught AP Government at Lebanon High School for 17 years. Mr. Meno received his undergraduate and Masters of Curriculum from Ohio University and his Principal’s Licensure from the University of Dayton.
The Board of Education is expected to vote on the recommendation at the July 20 meeting. The district will begin the process of selecting an assistant principal to replace Mr. Meno. Due to the timing, the district may select an interim assistant principal for the 2022-23 school year.
